ABSTRACT

In this Thesis, The Personal Services Locator helps users to find personalized workers or “Handymen” as fast as possible. The issue of finding a person or an individual to do a certain job has always been around, even though it has been reduced with the use of adverts and various social media, it’s not as fast and as efficient at locating people. This application finds the closest person(s) with the services running depending on which personalized service the user is looking for and which service the other user provides and links them together thus creating an appointment within the two users on where to meet and the transaction will be carried out. This software will run on Android and will be developed using Java programming language.
