Abstract [en]

This Master’s Thesis in Media Engineering has been performed in collaboration with Nostratic AB, Stockholm, Sweden. Nostratic believe that the use of mobile services will increase in the future. Pictures from mobile phone cameras increase in quality, and payments made from mobile phones are increasingly common. Nostratic has taken these facts into consideration and developed an idea for a new mobile service called mKort. By utilizing this service it is possible to send postcards from your mobile phone using a web interface. The user utilizes the camera on the mobile device to take a picture, type a message and specify a recipient. The postcard is then transferred to a printer who prints the postcard and sends it to the recipient. The user utilizes a commonly used method to pay for the service. A number of design questions have been approached in order gain understanding in how to develop this application. The application must be easy to use and must be able to run on a maximum number of mobile devices. Further, the application should have a general design to allow for further development. This master’s thesis describes the design and implementation of the mKort application. It includes a description of the methods used when developing the application, background theory of the technologies used and a description of the application design and architecture. Finally, the thesis includes a discussion of the software in relation to the approached design questions.
