So here I come out of the dark ages of PC and Laptops and notebooks and here comes my first blog from a 4.7 inch smartphone . I wanted to share what apps I love most on iPhone and don’t worry all are free 😛. So here are a few. Mind you these are my list ( from a Indian perspective)and you are free to have ur difference of opinion.
I am assuming most of us would have installed all the major social networking sites. You might also want to install about.Me for profiling and Flikr for cool snaps you have taken!!
They have a good interface and some great profiles to go through.
For taxi rides I use Uber and Olacabs (only in India)
The advantage with these mobile apps of regular taxis are they give you referrals and free rides which is not available when you their IVR or websites.merucabs are another local Indian fav.
Of news and feeds I rely on Flipboard and Instapaper and Digg.
( sorry but these are regular affair in India and I really wanted to support this brave lady)
Rely on Instapaper and Pocket for reading later when offline or while on travel where u don’t have internet.
Makemytrip ,Expedia , tripadvisor and cleartrip for travel bookings . Hotel right now from makemytrip gives good deals as well.
Coupondunia for deals and Zomato for review on places to have meals !
if you are a football fan like me you would like to install onefootball which gives you content of goal.com and you will get live ticker for games in progress as well from all the leagues in the globe. And if you love cricket then cricbuzz is the app to have.
I know for jobs most ppl use naukri and timesjobs, but glassdoor is invaluable to know the package and the culture of the company !
For rentals and searching houses you can use 99acres,common floor , majicbricks
For pregnancy apps I can’t think of anything better than babycenter my pregnancy app.
And for reviews if most of things I use mouthshut..
I use relax m for concentration and soothing sounds.
Ted for great talks and coursera for great computer talks . Meetups for scheduling and reaching out to like minded communities and groups mostly in the tech realm.
I use healthkart+ and webMD for meds and procedures and diagnosis.
Flipkart Ebooks gives you free Ebooks to read . Not just the romantic and the classics.
Justdial for any info on utility in neighborhood
Timeful for managing my time and yes finally WordPress and blogger apps for blogging 🙂
There are a few notable apps like memorado for brain games, busuu for learning foreign languages,topic to insert voice into snaps, awesome scanner for scanning docs and wireshare for sharing stuff . Try ipash tone kewl among geeks and I use procam for editing snaps when not using Instagram!!
There are a few other mentionable apps like my bsnl for paying your bsnl bills or mobile one for Bangalore utility bills and my Vodaphone for Vodaphone users finally
