In these days the second most popular operating system is the iOS, which is developed by the Apple Inc. According to recent statistics from 2012 the mobile phones based on iOS operating system have 21% on this segment of mobile market.

The theme of my thesis is creating a location-based game to the iOS platform.

The game is based on a hypotesis, that the world is divided into small equal rectangles, that can be occupied via check-ins by the user. The goal is to occupy as much territories as possible. The amount of check-ins are limited, since it is restricted by the program: the user can check-in only once in an hour and the territory belongs to the person, who has made more check-in in the last 60 days.

You can choose among two opportunities. Either manually or automatically in the background, which is offered by the iOS 7.

With the application the user can check-in in different territories around the world or watch the map, and get informations about his friends, who are also playing the game.

In my Thesis, I am going to describe basics the of the iOS, what is required to understand how an application works. Furthermore another topic will be the possibilities of the location in iOS.
