In these days almost everyone has a mobile phone, because of their extraordinary development. In the view of the IT Experts it means that they have to concentrate on the development of mobile applications. Therefore more and more platform made for mobile phones appear, the newest among them is the Google Android. This platform is open in every respect, which facilitates the work of the developers.

Only the social networks are capable to match the pace of the development of mobile phones. In short time they acquired an enormous popularity, they conquered everyone. That is why today's applications try to support the making of social relations with their own solutions or taken from others, because that is the only way for them to become popular.

The other trend of today is sharing the location related information, which is only available because of the development of the mobile phones. The user is amazed by doing location-based operations such as pinning chosen points on a map, which you can attach a lot of things to, or you can easily tell your friends your exact location. By doing this fast and easily you only need your phone, and you can use this feature whenever or wherever which provides you huge freedom.

It is really rare for an IT expert to develop an application alone. An engineer needs to learn how to work in a team, in accordance and collaborance with the others for a long time. You can only be successful and productive if you can be efficient part of a team.

In return for this the main goal of my master's thesis is an exhaustive demonstration of the interesting alloy of these three topics, concentrating on the importance of the team work, all of this done on Android platform, and finally drawing the lessons.
