Modern mobile application development is a fast reacting business. One success factor is the ability to be able to add new features rapidly into a product. This can be enabled by a process model designed to support it, and the use of a flexible architecture. Plug-in architecture is one approach to create a flexible architecture, because it enables adding new software components. We have refactored an existing application to a plug-in architecture, and implemented a process model to support rapid adding of features. In our approach new features are implemented as plug-ins, which are added to the application. In this paper we describe the process model, discuss of adding new plug-in using it, and describe our experiences of using the process model.
