Over the last years the trend of the technology market is directed towards smaller “smart" devices and the software that can support them due to their limited resources. Nowadays, mobile phones provide wider functionality and they are not only used for phone calls and SMS. Also, the general public and public administrations use open source software increasingly. To meet these requirements, the mobile industry is now applying technologies which were directed previously on PCs. Using a "smart" phone it is possible to have access to the Internet, to retrieve geographical data, listen to music, download from websites, carry out banking transactions, and of course do phone calls and send messages. A large share of the market belongs to Android as an "ecosystem", which is supported by hardware, operating system and software. Therefore, the choice of said technology for the subject to be studied was considered of great importance. This thesis aims to study, understand and analyze a file-sharing application for the Android platform that aims to be installed in "smart" mobile devices and be accessed by all platforms via the Internet, so that files are available on all devices (PCs, mobile terminals) that have established an Internet connection. An important goal of this diploma thesis is for the Android to be emerged as a tool for developing applications required for daily use and as an introduction to Object Oriented Programming via tools that are easy to use. It is essential to be also considered useful for the public, should they have understood the vast range of its possibilities. A detailed analysis of the use of the Android-related technologies leads to the conclusion that these technologies help in the overall user experience.
