    We have arrived to a period when mobile phones are becoming part of our lives. New technologies enable us to solve problems, which seemed unsolvable few years ago. Nowadays we have a lot of mobile applications. Some are good, some are bad. Difference between them is that good applications use latest technologies and approaches and best solve specific problem. Question is: which technologies and approaches have to be used to solve specific problem? Our problem or goal of our dissertation is to develop mobile application for Erasmus students on exchange in Ljubljana. Task of the application is to enable access to basic information needed while studying. Information consists of location and presentation of University of Ljubljana, locations and basic information about faculties, libraries, embassies, student dormitories and other public institutions, and useful tips for easier living in Ljubljana. Development includes defining mobile application specification, examination of solutions for limitations at different scenarios of usage and on the end also implementation on actual data. With framework PhoneGap we covered Android, iOS and Windows Phone platforms. For user interface we used HTML5 and jQuery Mobile. We stored data in local SQLite database and developed mechanism for updating data. For visualisation of locations on map we used opensource OpenStreetMap maps together with Leaflet library, which takes care of displaying and enhancing map on mobile device.
