A mobile device like a smart phone is becoming one of main information processing devices for users these days. Using it, a user not only receives and makes calls, but also performs information processing tasks such as retrieving information about nearest restaurants, ATMs etc. With the rapid improvement in technology of these mobile computing devices, Location Based Services (LBS) have been gaining a lot of attention over the years. The location service provider uses the geographical position of the user to provide services to the end users. However,a mobile device is still resource constrained, and some applications usually demand more resources than a mobile device can afford. To alleviate this, a mobile device should get resources from an external source. One of such sources is cloud computing platforms. We can predict that the mobile area will take on a boom with the advent of this new concept.The aim of this paper is to exchange messages between user and location service provider in mobile device accessing the cloud by minimizing cost,data storage and processing power. Our main goal is to provide dynamic location-based service and increase the information retrieve accuracy especially on the limited mobile screen by accessing cloud application. We have implemented our application in Android
