  • Patent number: 9692822
    Abstract: A mobile device may download preconfigured synchronization settings from a server machine. An application running on the mobile device may have special control logic that works with the server machine to implement a mobile synchronization algorithm. The control logic may collect information on communication system elements including device attributes, static channel attributes, dynamic channel attributes, or a combination thereof. The server machine may determine communication settings based at least on the collected information. The mobile device may, based at least in part on the determined communication settings, perform a synchronization process and obtain one or more synchronization items from the server machine to update content, graphics, and/or behavior of the application. Upon completion of the synchronization process, statistics may be collected and used in a subsequent dynamic synchronization process.
