Mobile devices and wireless technologies are making a large impact on our lives. Especially mobile devices have been widely used in the last few years, and recent developments in wireless technologies have provided some new solutions to modes of connectivity. In recent times, there have been dramatic changes in the field of mobile devices with the goal of improving the mobile environment. Companies that develop mobile applications are in the process of continuous by evolving of their products for creating tools that satisfy the customers' needs even more comprehensively and better. The Mobile Food Ordering System (MFOS) proposed in this thesis is one of the tools that intends to provide a food ordering application on mobile devices for different food stores with the option of both delivery and pickup. Using the MFOS product, the customers can choose to pick up their order from near-by stores, and they can check store locations using the map feature of MFOS. Customers can also choose the delivery option and the order will be delivered to their address. It will be helpful to MFOS customers to choose the food items from a menu rather than spending more time on a call with the operator. By using MFOS the users do not have to wait in a queue at the restaurants. Hence, this is a win-win situation for both the consumers and the restaurants.This thesis presents the background in terms of new technologies in handheld devices, and current research in human-computer interaction for mobile applications. It also surveys several applications of handheld devices and discusses their characteristics. This thesis also explains the main functions, key usability aspects, intended users, software model, and prototype of MFOS. The thesis also briefly compares MFOS with related applications in terms of functionality and feature offerings. Directions of future work for MFOS are also outlined in the thesis.
