Abstract [en]

The widespread use of smartphones today, and the hardware available in these smartphones should make it possible to use these devices as a foundation for digital guides at, for example, tourist attractions with a historical connection. This report examines whether it is possible to create an Android application for smartphones that functions as a digital guide. Furthermore an attempt to delete sensitive data, in this case location data from the volatile memory on a smartphone running Android, is done. It turns out that a smartphone can be used as a foundation for a digital guide as long as the area that is to be covered by the guide is located in an area that is covered by the mobile networks and that it is possible to communicate with the GPS system. Deleting all the sensitive data from the volatile memory however, is more or less impossible.
