The goal for this thesis is to create a second screen application that will enhance the experience while watching a first screen. In order to create that type of application research within the subject and reviews of existing application is conducted. The reviews resulted in functionality and content that a second screen application should have. One of the big challenges for working with a second screen balance the focus between the screens and to make sure that the application creates value, rather than taking time and being frustrating.
A concept of an application based on findings and iterations that will en- hance the experience were created. The concept were realised in wireframes and design mockups. The main functionality for the application is implemented with the native language objective-c as a working prototype on iPad.
The biggest finding during this thesis is to remember to focus on solving one specific problem for the user.
