This paper presents a mobile visual application aimed at fully exploiting semantics of request descriptions to enable advanced services. Distinguishing aspects of its underlying framework include semantic ranking of request results and logic-based explanation of matchmaking outcomes as well as the context identification and exploitation to select suitable resources. The GUI has been designed and implemented to be effective for handheld devices with reduced screen capabilities. It requires no
