There are two Overlay classes available in MapView to use the feature of putting the information(image\text) on the map.

You need supply the information as per your requirement and add the overlay to the mapviwew ( mapview.addOverlays(myOverlay) ).

Rest is your application magic.
Hope the suggestion helps you
