Abstract [en]

This thesis is a an idea that derives from Eniro AB. The idea was to make an application for mobile devices that would make it easier for the user to stay in touch with friends. The application should be able to gather information of the phone’s contacts by searching Eniro for their phone number and present the information in a simple and convenient way.  Because of the authors’ previous experience in Java programming the application was made for Android devices.  Android provides a software development kit with necessary tools and documentation for developing applications with the Java programming language. The result is an application that is able to search Eniro for all contacts in the phone book and store them in a database. These are then presented in both a list view and a map view.  The list is sorted with the person living closest to the user’s location at the top. From the list view the user has the option to either call the contact or send a text message. The map view contains a map with markers at the contacts’ locations. By clicking the marker certain information will be shown in a window. There are still some bugs to fix and features to implement.  Possible improvements to the application could be functions for finding restaurants and cafes nearby and a less time consuming synchronization. Since the project was to be done within a limited period of time and the authors did not have any previous experience of Android development the application should be considered as a prototype.
