Nowadays social network websites and applications based on them have propagated significantly. With the appearance of smartphones and other portable devices (e.g. tablets) users have been given the opportunity to connect these social portals from other devices besides desktop computers. As a result, more frequent and more intensive interaction with these sites has become possible, and it has provided the programmers, who develop social network based applications, a whole new range of possibilities.
Basically, my goal in my thesis is to create a social application based on the Windows Phone 7 platform. The software implemented by me has got the name Super Alarm and as it can be guessed from its name, it is an alarm clock application – supplemented with social features. Although the basic concept might seem a bit strange, my personal experiences prove that some people do need an application of this kind.
I aimed to make the application produced by me usable and lovable and to make it address a broad-base of users. In my opinion I have succeeded in it, I hope that also others agree with me.
