Abstract: A sedentary lifestyle keeps increasing in Western societies. The impact on the population¿s health is very negative and can lead to serious diseases. This Master Thesis includes the design and development of an app for Android mobile phones, aimed at increasing the daily physical activity of users and, thus, contributing to improving their health. To achieve this goal, it uses gamification techniques to combine the use of Metro in the city of Barcelona with walking routes, maximizing the latter in urban journeys. For the design of the functionalities, interfaces, and flows of the application, user-centered design methodologies (UCD) have been used. Potential users, their needs and usage contexts have been analyzed in detail to obtain the functional requirements. After the conceptual design, the prototyping of the application has been carried out and evaluated. For the rest of the stages, a cascade model has been followed, combined with rapid application development techniques. For the implementation, the TMB public API (Open Data), the Google Maps API, and the Google Places API have been used. Firebase FireStore was used as a backend service, and Cloud Storage to store photos (both from Google). The result is a fully functional app, which implements all the projected functionalities and use cases. Some future lines could be the extension to more public transport and other cities, as well as the inclusion of more gamification and motivation techniques.
