Mobile is a device which is increasing in popularity day by day with powerful cameras and other facilities. We can utilize the power of mobiles in lot of applications. But battery capacity is a scarce resource in mobiles till now. So utilizing the high resolution cameras and using minimum battery power applications are advisable for mobile devices. Similarly we are considering two more application one a chess game and another is a sorting applications with different constraints. In this paper we propose a three tier architecture. Instead of depending on the distant cloud resources alone we are utilizing the nearby resource called cloudlet which can be accessed through wifi connectivity which is available everywhere nowadays. The cloudlet is a powerful resource which is in close proximity and by using this, the overall performance such as response time, efficiency can be increased. This paper analyses the effect of cloudlet in each application. © Research India Publications.
