    There are more than 1.5 billion smartphone users and the use of mobile applications (apps) is steadily increasing. Most never succeed because of users' high expectations and market saturation. The aim of this thesis is to present the process of creating useful and successful apps for Windows Phone 8 (WP8). The data presented was collected with regard to the specifics that differentiate WP8 from other operating systems. App developers often disregard processes that should be present in the development of any quality product. They were merged with the data about app development. The theory is expanded with examples from the app "Shop or Drop". It was developed for people that need help deciding while clothes shopping. They can simply take a picture of themselves in the chosen clothes and send it to their friends. Their opinions are collected in the app and that helps the user to decide. It was developed in accordance with the processes and specifics of WP8 explained in the thesis.
