Today the use of mobile phones is limited by the programmed hardware witch cannot be changed or upgraded by the user to his needs or wishes. The problem is the preinstalled software where no func- tions or application interfaces are planned. This problem can be solved by a Mobile Application Interface which is a programming interface for the hardware and basic services of the mobile phone. Such application interface can provide access to the display for writing or drawing, reading the keyboard, handling calls and using other services like short message services (SMS).
