Abstract A Life Status consists of three elements, first where are you, next who are you together with and last what you are doing. To obtain these three elements, an application was designed to collect this, using Python for S60 on the Symbian platform. The application is designed to run all the time on a mobile phone, collecting information from different sensors. To determine the current place of the user, it scans for visible wi's and use the GSM cell id. To find out whom there is around, it scanning for bluetooth devices and sorting all none phone device out. The activity is predicted on behalf of the place, the calendar and input from the user. Different social websites was analyzed, to determine the best site to share the Life Status. Facebook was selected, because of they offers the best privacy. It was found important, that not all on the Internet, was able to read these status updates. They also offer an API there fits the purpose. The application was tested on different users. None of them had any problems to figure out, how the application operates.
