Recently, with the increasing speed of the internet, people changed how they watch television. Nowadays every household has high-speed internet connection for downloading something. Everyday people more and more download their favorite series so they don’t have to watch frustrating advertisements. Another problem in Hungary, that famous foreign series only comes here after a few months.
In addition to this a true series fan needs to remember their favorite shows’ airing times and has to find download links for every new episode in every week. These tasks really hard to accomplish in today’s rushing world, especially when someone has 10 or 15 favorites.
I needed to find a solution for the problem that fit to the expectations of the modern age. The application must offer a functionality to search shows, mark them as favorite, and provide download links. One goal of this thesis was to find a solution that utilizes new technologies and in the meantime also come to know their usage.
Searching for a new technology I’ve decided alongside the Windows 8.1 operating system, which is the updated version of Windows 8. I developed a modern style application, called Windows Store application, which was introduced in Microsoft’s new operating system. With my work I tried to fit for the requirements of these apps, supplied with a notification system and calendar synchronization.
