    As Internet is changing from a network of data into a network of functionalities, a federated Internet of applications is a natural trending topic, where every application can cooperate with each other smoothly to serve users. Cooperation can be regarded as integrating applications of different providers for users. However, existing integration techniques do not pay enough attention to multiple participants including application providers and end-users. In this study, we advocate a global cooperation framework of Internet of applications for all the participants. Specifically, we propose an intermediary based model to realize the cooperation among applications. With this model, on the one hand, users can be greatly facilitated to cooperatively use applications from various providers to meet their individualized requirements; on the other hand, providers can easily enable their own applications to interact with those from other providers. Thus, the federated Internet of applications is easier to be achieved than using existing solutions. In addition, we implement the model and develop some important techniques, including a) A uniform identity authentication protocol. b) A cooperation execution protocol. c) A multi-vender operated distributed infrustracture. Finally, we show some case studies which demonstrate the effectiveness of this model. In our vision, such a model is the beginning to bring the socialized relationships behind applications into the digital world.
