Android is an operating system for Smartphones,tablets and laptops from the Google-sponsored Open Handset Alliance. Android is the leading mobile platform worldwide. Android is a Linux OS, and Android apps are programmed in Java. An Android app is a software application running on the Android platform. Because the Android platform is built for mobile devices, a typical Android app is designed for a Smartphone or a tablet PC running on the Android OS. Initially developed by Android that is Google backed financially and later bought in 2005.Android was
unveiled in 2007, with the founding of the Open Handset Alliance; a package of hardware, software and telecommunication companies devoted to advancing open standards for mobile devices.
Android is open source and this open source code and permissive licensing allows the software to be freely modified and distributed by device manufacturers and enthusiast developers (Google releases the code under the Apache License) .And Android has a large community of developers for writing applications (apps) and these extend the functionality of devices, written primarily in customized version of the Java Programming language. There were approximately 700,000 apps available for Android, and the number of applications downloaded from Google Play –
Androids primary store, was 25 billion in October 2012. A developer survey found that Android is the most popular platform for developers, used by 71% of the mobile developer population in AprilMay 2013.These factors have contributed making Android, platform, and the software of choice for technology companies. Hence, despite being primarily designed for phones and tablets, Android has additional applications with televisions, games, digital cameras and other electronics. The open nature of Android has further encouraged a large community of developers and enthusiasts to use the open-source code as a foundation for community-driven projects, and this add new features for advanced users or to bring Android devices officially released running on other operating systems.
Android's share of the global smart phone market, led by Samsung products, was 64% in March 2013. There were 11,868 different models of Android device, crores of screen sizes and eight OS versions simultaneously in March 2013 for use. The Android's success has made it a target as part of the so-called "smart phone wars" between technology companies. By May 2013, 48 billion apps have been installed from the Google Play store, and at September 3, 2013, there have been 1 billion Android devices activated. Since when Smart Phone was commercialized and distributed in 2009, which may commonly used the mobile App and also, under which all Internet services are expected to be modified and provided to App when the computing market moves from PC to Smart phone. Anyhow each request on developing and distributing mobile App occurs additionally. And students being interested with such applications and smart phones . Android provide dozens of programs and apps for college students that can be very informative and useful if you want to keep up with the times and boost your studying process. The proposed system was implemented on the smart phones. It helps all to find out various college options from their phone and the candidate also helps to shortlist the best college for them. Cutoff ,cast
,district is given as a input for finding seat availability for the college.
To start with we use a set of tools that are included in the Android SDK. Once we have downloaded and installed the SDK, we can access these tools right from our Eclipse IDE, through the ADT plug-in, or from the command line. Developing with Eclipse is the preferred method because it
can directly invoke the tools that we need while developing applications. During setup we install and set up our development environment. We also create Android Virtual Devices (AVDs) and connect hardware devices, on which we can install our applications. MYSQL is used as a database at the web server and PHP is used to fetch data from the database. Our application will communicate with the PHP page with necessary parameters and PHP will contact MYSQL database and will fetch the result and return the results to us.In a counseling database the college name, location, seat availability for a particular cast are stored. Whereas the students must give their a cutoff mark, location, caste which will be retrieved from database. Mining information and knowledge from large databases has been recognized by many searchers as a key research topic in database systems.Counselling Recommendation system helping learners to planning the career development. This service also helps problems faced by learners. The application is designed specifically for Guidance and Counselling services that run on mobile devices. The administrator only has been given permission to access the database information and make changes to the information. The administrator, student are given an own user name and password for their access to the application. If the seat which he or she want to take has been filled by the other students, it leads to conflict to them. To avoid such situation we recommend online college counselling recommendation system upto date seat availability for their caste. The counseling database should be secure from unauthorized access.

Universities can manage their student database and support students starting from course selection up to certification. This proposed system is having many added advantages that it is a cost effective process which consumes less time and does not include any human errors because every activity will be performed through online. It is automatic process based on web services. It is more efficient and counselling scheme can reach for all students.
As for the future works, instead of entering the cutoff marks we can enter the total marks the system will calculate the cutoff mark automatically from your total marks.
