This bachelor thesis deals with the creation of an Android client for an existing personal information management system which transfers concepts of social media in the context of PIM systems.

The client should be extended to store and manage additional types of information, such as geo-informations or files. Those file types include audio files, images, PDFs or other multimedia data types. The management and insertion of those information types should be realized by using the MimeType API which allows to use those multimedia information in cooperation with the operating system or other applications on the mobile phone. Especially the data type aware presentation and insertion (e.g. by using maps for geoinformation) is crucial for high usability.
