Abstract: With the increase of mobile application usage, more information is stored in the phone nowadays. Once the storage on the phone is lost or broken, all of the information might be gone at a time. Thus, backing up data is very important for mobile phone users. However, storing information in other devices is still risky, and it is inconvenient to transfer data between devices. Therefore, it is better to upload our mobile data up to the cloud service. In this research, based on the concept of service-oriented computing (SOC), a cross-platform mobile service architectural framework is presented and implemented. The proposed cloud backup application enables users to synchronise mobile data to cloud storages among different mobile platforms. Hence, the cross-platform-ability of the data would be enhanced. Furthermore, if we synchronise all the information from mobile phones to the cloud, each phone can be considered as a unique personal cloud fulfilling various personal requirements.
