This project was motivated by two related ideas: what can be learned about the unique issues involved with developing cloud-based mobile applications; and, what application could be developed to evaluate these characteristics that would also be innovative and provide value to users. After vetting ideas for the latter objective, it was clear that a new digital coupon system could offer value and apply interesting technologies to computer science problems, such as shortest path calculation, position-aware authentication, game theory, and statistical reasoning. A brief summary of the motivation for developing the new digital coupon system follows.
