Storing warranty receipts can sometimes be problematic. Receiptscan be lost, bleached and become illegible or in an extreme case, the storage area is destroyed.
The company Freck AB offers a service to store these receiptsonline. They also provides a webpage where the user is able to handle their receipts and an iPhone client for easier uploading.
Since the smartphones are increasing in market share each year, with different operating systems, it causes a market fragmentation. If Freck AB wants to address more potential customers, the application needs to get ported to more platforms. Currently iOS holds a 15.7% of the market share, and if the application is ported to the AndroidOS platform, 38.4% of the smartphone users will be addressed.
This thesis will present a portation of an iOS application to the Android OS platform. It will also discuss basic Android programming together with the Android SDK classes and techniques used.
The portation was considered successful and the subgoals were met. The application has been tested on multiple emulators and on one physical device with good results.
