In the current technological era, mobile computing and the Internet of Things (IoT) have been used globally in various domains. Mobile technology is one of the fast-growing discipline and it is considerably important in professional and personal day-to-day lives of people. Smartphones have become part of the daily life and almost every daily tasks are done using mobile phones. This paper presents an innovative solution of donating used things with the help of a mobile application. The paper focuses on the requirement analysis, design, implementation and testing stages of the donation mobile application. The main aim of the development of this mobile app is to establish a connection between donor and others who would like to receive the items. This application is targeting the population of the Kingdom of Bahrain. This app aims to decrease the environmental impact and spread the spirit of solidarity in the society.
