With the invention and evolution of telecommunication technology and mobile devices, the socialization and communication among communities become easier and nationwide, even worldwide. Many corporates and service providers are eyeing on the development of mobile application which allows them to earn more revenues while providing telecommunication services to users. However, the evolution does not bring advantage to rural residents due to some limitations such as insufficient of mobile network coverage, geographically scattered issues, as well as the requirements to achieve stable Internet connection. The difficulty in communication met within the rural communities can only be addressed as if a desired mobile text messaging application that supports local telecommunication services is provided. In this project, the author proposes a localized social media application that runs on android mobile platforms. The target user of this system is the residents living in the rural areas whom always been neglected by the modern society and often low-educated. Through this chat application, the users are able to communicate with each other by sending or receiving messages for free without the presence of Internet. As long as they are connected to the network and registered to the system server, they are always able to communicate with each other for free. Other than the basic texting services, the system also provides other functionalities such as announcement and media sharing.
