Abstract
Shopping is one essential activity in every individual’s life. Without shopping, individuals will not have access to things they need to live comfortably. Handymen also make our lives easier by offering services we cannot provide for ourselves either due to lack of skills, time constraints or unavailability of necessary tools. Shopping and finding handymen are relatively easier in developed countries because of the ease of accessing shopping centers, and handymen. However, in developing countries, bad roads and traffic congestion, security and safety threats make these activities much more difficult. In this project, a mobile application to locate shops, items, and handymen is developed to increase the accessibility rate of shops and items, while decreasing security and safety threats associated with hiring handymen.
