Mobile applications have to adhere to many constraints.
ContextEngine has been developed for the Android platform to easier deal with such limitations and situation-specific information across applications to, thus, create context-aware, mobile systems. With the increased adaptability and dynamics of context-aware applications comes an increase complexity, which in turn makes it harder to understand
the behaviour of such applications. In this paper we describe how we enhanced the ContextEngine platform with explanation capabilities. Explaining can be seen as complex reasoning task on its own. Here, we focus on “canned explanations”. Canned explanations are information artefacts, pre-formulated by the software engineer,
that serve as explanatory artefacts stored in the system and delivered to the user on demand.
