The profuse use of Mobile Applications has made them a part and parcel of our lives, be it for personal use, corporate based task or entertainment. “Domestic Android Application for Home Services”, is a Corporate based mobile application for android users that brings together the client and service providers and connects them using the GPS (Global Positioning System). Clients request for the home services and based on the location by fetching the latitude and longitude of the client, the nearest service provider is allotted to serve the client’s needs. By enhancing the existing system “FacilityKart” application which does not implement GPS into its application, this application has a wide scope for integrating maps to allow drag and drop to another location, and make this application available for other mobile operating systems other than android.
