Abstract [en]

Smartphones are becoming increasingly popular day by day. The reason why they are called ‘Smart phones’ is that they can perform advanced computing and have a better connectivity to the Internet. Smartphones usually run a complete operating system. For example, iOS runs on Apple Inc.’s mobile devices like iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad [1]. A Smartphone allows the user to run applications. These applications are aimed at making life simpler for the users.

This Master Thesis aims at developing one such application called ‘Help4Dinner’ with focus on user-interface and usability. The application can make the life easier for people who want to manage the groceries they have at home and their shopping list. The interface has been carefully designed so that users can get used to the application very soon and also feel comfortable with it.

Throughout the process of design and development an iterative method of development was used. With continuous interaction with my supervisor and member of No1 Advisor, the design changes were discussed after every sprint. Testing was done at regular intervals both in device and simulator and finally the application was submitted to Apple’s AppStore on June 17th 2011.  After inspection by Apple the application was published on June 25th 2011 and was available for download.
