Solutions in the domain of mobile computing face a typical problem of fragmentation due to permissible customization to android framework. Fragmentation is a problem at the device side where the expected behavior of an application is not exhibited identically over all other devices. Presently, cross-layer design is becoming essential aspect of the app development, targeted to deliver an energy-efficient and productive solution. Fragmentation is posing an enormous challenge for development community, and solutions are designed per case basis. There are solutions developed in the domain of graphics and Web access, but as far as the fragmentation with core framework is considered, the solution is still missing. In this paper, we are proposing an intermediate background app residing between the application and the core framework. The proposed app TelePatch generates a map between the intended calls with actually supported calls. The map so obtained can be used by the interested application to obtain the services from the core framework. In our case, we have deployed TelePatch with NeSen, used for capturing the network-state parameters using telephony API of the Android. © 2017, Springer-Verlag London Ltd.
