The ubiquity of web applications and the user possession and utilization of multiple devices are major factors for the increased demand for multi-screen applications. Multi-screen applications impose challenges on the application developer and designer especially if existing single-screen applications have to be transformed to the multi-screen environment. Designers should plan the user interface distribution and should adapt the layout for various devices. Developers should re-organize the application logic and associate it to the distributed user interface. They should preserve the application functionality and finally they need to adapt it to the underlying multi-screen platform. In this work , we propose an end-to-end refactoring system for web applications. The system allows the re-use of existing single-screen applications to automatically create multi-screen applications. The components of the multi-screen applications have their layout adapted to small and large device and they are ready to operate synchronously to provide a complementary usage experience. The performance of the system is quantitatively evaluated on different sets of applications containing at least one video element and interactive content.
