In the recent years, as smart phones popularized, the number of people who use IMS (instant messaging service) and SNS (social network service) rapidly has increased as the usage of SMS (short message service) relatively decreased. That is why this thesis suggests a contact control service based on Android. The specifics of this service are as followed; 1) it contains an inducing function that calls acquaintances who were given a score based on the level of familiarity from saved contacts and call logs. 2) it provides an overall ranking of call log in order to grasp frequently-called-people. 3) it syncs with Facebook in order to understand who were interested in what the users have talked about. Lastly, 4) the users do not feel a repulsion since the program fully utilized the Android UI Framework and it was designed with a concern of User Experience and used an approaching method that is easy to use and eidetic. This developed system was tested on Samsung Galaxy S2 and LG Optimus LTE / Android 2.2 which were the main smart phone models.
