Due to the extensive availability of wireless internet connectivity and low cost light weight mobile devices, an omnipresent customizable service is not a vision anymore. If this type of service can be made a reality, it can be used by different types of users in different fields such as education, tourism, shopping or business, at any time and at any place. In this paper, we present the details of Ubicomp Secretary (US), which is designed and developed to accomplish the above objectives. US is developed upon the Web Services based architecture which asserts its adherence to all the required features of an ubiquitous computing application. Its evaluation by different means establishes these facts as well as its wide range of acceptability.
