In this chapter we discuss various aspects of adaptive mobile guide applications. After having motivated the need for web based mobile applications, we will discuss technologies that are needed to enable adaptive mobile web applications, including not only positioning technologies but also sensor technologies needed to determine additional information on the context and situation of usage. We will also address issues of modeling context and situations before giving an overview on existing systems coming from three important classes of mobile guides: museum guides, navigation systems and shopping assistants. The chapter closes with an extensive discussion of relevant attributes of web based mobile guides.
