The subject of this thesis is a software system designed to provide an accommodation search and managing service for web and mobile use, based on the leading technologies and solutions of the day.
One of the system’s goal is to demonstrate that in these days it is possible to run service what can be useful for society, without any cost from the users and the creator’s part. To this end, will be compared today’s cloud-based so called Platform as a Service (PaaS) solutions for hosting websites. Taking notice Google’s service of this kind, as the system in question is built on this service.
Another goal of creating this software system is to demonstrate modern smart phones’ abilities.

For this purpose will be compared the phone operating systems used on smartphones in Europe, focusing on the Android OS, as host of the implemented accommodation service’s mobile client.
In the following, the steps of design and implementation of the software will be presented, highlighting the possibilities during design and the choices made, and the difficulties encountered during implementation and the solution of these.
