The Eclipse tool and programming languages Java, PHP, XML and JSON are introduced - these enable application development in the Android operation system. An important connection between the server and the application is enabled via RESTful web service. In the second part of the graduate work important concepts of application part are realized. Their function is to obtain information about the base station, mobile device location, connection of the Android application to web server, and map displaying.
