In this paper we present a taxonomy for characterizing pervasive applications. This taxonomy focuses on abstracting application characteristics, independent of the characteristics of the middleware or infrastructure that support the application, and provides a controlled vocabulary for thinking about the application. We provide an informal verification for the taxonomy by using it to categorize a range of pervasive applications, culled from the literature and from projects we are involved in,

Finally, we present concrete uses for the taxonomy.
