A mobile application is a program that is downloaded and installed onto a user’s mobile device such as a Smartphone, tablet, etc., you may download the application either from an online store such as the app store or Google play 1 Google Play offers any application with a different functionality and purposes that might allow the user to browse and download the application such as Facebook, games, Google maps and others. Facebook made for a communication, gathering viral articles, announcement, posting photos and videos, events and fan page. A game is to entertain the player or the user of the said games. Google Map is a web mapping service developed by Google intended to give directions for drivers, bikers, walkers, and users of public transportation who want to take a trip from one specific location to another.Amobile application, most commonly referred to as an app, is type ofapplication software designed to run on a mobile device, such as a Smartphone or tablet computer. Mobile applications frequently serve to provide users with similar services to those accessed on PCs 2.
In today`s era, there is a greater possibility that one individual can create and develop a mobile application base on how our world works, which is people are surrounded by high technologies. As the popularity of mobile phone and tablets has grown the mobile applications are getting popular too. In 2011 International Conference, the use of mobile devices has become a part of our daily routine. Recently, mobile devices like mobile phones or portable digital displays (PDAs) are equipped with global positioning system (GPS) receptors that allow us to get the device’s geographic position in real time. Location Based Services (LBS) are regarded as a key feature of many future mobile applications. This application also enables the users to get their current location coordinates (latitude, longitude, and altitude) and they can also view their locations on the Google maps.GPS was originally intended for military applications, but in the 1980s, the government made the system available for civilian use.GPS can show you your exact position on the Earth in any weather conditions, anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day. There are no subscription fees or setup charges to use GPS 3. As it can be seen in a developed society, the cities grow day to day; it gives the idea that in the future the major part of the people around the world will live in a city. The term digital city was given to know how the cities will be able to receive these people. Hence, it is important to study how new technologies can improve life quality in several aspects, including the tourism. About tourism, one important aspect to consider is the available information about different places in a city to guide visitors. With the aim to provide information about the different places in a city, usually, there are several signs to help visitors. However, it has not been enough. Thus, the existing technologies like the Augmented Reality (AR) are mainly focused on providing this type of information 4.
Nowadays most of the government and companies are quickly adapting to a latest technological development like to have their own application to help and report about the recent information to the community or in a business. Taking advantage of the wide diffusion of the mobile devices, it is possible to use Augmented Reality technology in a mobile device to identify a place. Currently, there are some applications that provide places identification, but they only work with an Internet connection. This article proposes an offline mobile application for places identification with Augmented Reality 4. iPhone development is all the rage these days. While the platform is smaller in terms of population than social network platforms like Facebook or MySpace, the iPhone offers unique advantages for both individual developers and larger companies looking to expand their reach. iPhone users tend to be relatively affluent, and the platform offers possibilities for creating uniquely engaging applications. Create a great product. Great apps generate word of mouth that can lead to significant downloads. The iPhone is a particularly exciting development environment relative to the Web because of certain aspects of the platform: mobile, GPS, touch screen, and the accelerometer. We focused a lot of energy on creating an excellent user experience for daters using the SpeedDate app so people would recommend it to their friends.Take advantage of PR. iPhone is one of the few platforms on which PR can actually help create sustainable traffic. If your app gets covered in a variety of mobile and tech related blogs, you’ll see a spike in downloads. If this spike, combined with other initiatives, causes your app to have a high number of downloads, you can generate significant traffic from being ranked highly for searches in the iPhone store 5.
In the community mobile application is much important, we can use it in our daily living for communication, entertainment, and safeties, but some of the government do not yet start adopting the progress of the mobile application which is needed to aware the people from the calamity.
As observe the researcher would like to contribute and help aiming to create a mobile application entitled A Development of a Mobile Application on Mapping Information System of Flood Area in Cabadbaran City to help the people in the city aware and know where are the target areas of a flood and make yourself ready in case it will happen, and to identify the flood legend area, and help them find an evacuation area for a flood victim. By using this mobile application people will be informed and updated about the flood and be prepared.
