Abstract: Mobile apps have found wide acceptance in today’s world which heavily depend on smart technology to access data over wide location. The apps are mostly of native type which can be used for accessing data even without the internet availability. In this paper the development of mobile native applications requires the assimilation of various analytical contexts depending on the requirement of users. We have done an empirical study of various papers based on ubiquitous systems and mobile apps for finding out the contexts in building mobile native apps and the mobile contexts are such as device context, user context, mobility context and social context. We have found that the overall weight of each mobile context is an empirical study. We have taken various activities which are performed among a user and mobile native apps and formed them into questionnaires which are sent to different mobile native app developers of different software industries. The mapping is done among these activities with the attributes and their associated mobile contexts. We have identified and obtained four contexts as main requirements for developing mobile native apps under any domain. The analysis of requirements is done modeling the contexts and their attributes through OWLDL language. We have determined from the empirical study that the overall weight of device context is more than the other contexts. Hence it is clear that the device context with its numerous features have a great impact on developing mobile native apps under any domain.
