    Abstract

    The Android application will help users avoid premium business telephone numbers in the United Kingdom (e.g. numbers that begin with 0870 or 0845). Users can also search for free alternative numbers and lookup how much a premium number costs if a free number is not available. Additionally, users will be able to view and post ratings for telephone numbers after making calls to help future callers. A web service will be built on the existing website to handle requests from the Android application. As the website only stores and displays numbers, some of the features designed for the Android application will also be implemented into the existing website.
