The objective of this thesis was to examine the fundamentals and basic principles of great user experience and user interface design. The focus was on laying out theoretical foundations and applying them into a practical end result – a camera application with a simple and user friendly graphical interface. In order to set up the foundations of the thesis, a comprehensive research into the many different factors that, as a whole, make up a good user experience was conducted. Throughout section 2, a brief history of mobile phones and the current place of smartphones and their applications are explored. In section 3, the popularity of mobile photography and the need of well-designed user experience and user interface in mobile camera applications are discussed. And finally, section 4 and section 5 consist of key aspects that influence user experience including a brief introduction and explanation to the most noticeable of them – user in- terface design. After the background knowledge on the subject is constructed, the practical part of the thesis presents a prototype and visual mockups of a new mobile camera application concept as a result.
