Mobile Apps Every Indian Needs

Mobile Apps Every Indian Needs

The popularity of the smartphone has risen significantly since the day of its launch now that literally every other person has one. Apps were made to help us aid our problems and find us short-cuts and quick solutions for our needs. But visiting the app store of either platform can be daunting, especially with the rise of so many apps that the better ones are hidden and the newer ones are competing with each other that we miss out on the important ones. Here is a list of apps in my opinion that every Indian needs (if you don’t have them already).This list will exclude Social Media apps such as Youtube, Whatsapp, Facebook, Messenger, Twitter, Instagram, Skype and Snapchat as I’m guessing many people would already have them downloaded as soon as they get their hands on a new phone. This list may be cliché and many people may already know about them, but these are the most effective ones that help us around in our daily commute:

1. Share It:

This lovely app allows users to share files such as images, videos, songs, audio recordings, documents and even apps! This is a must on every person’s smartphone. No more fancy gimmicky features from Samsung trying to share files just by holding your Samsung smartphone to your friend’s Samsung smartphone to transfer files. You can now accomplish this by a simple app found both in the Playstore & App-store and transfer files to each other at the press of a button. The popularity of this app has led to its millions of downloads and I’m sure you would’ve heard about this app from one of your friends abusing you for not having it. This also allows cross-platform transfer from Android to iOS allowing you to not be left behind among your friends.

2. AmpMe:

AmpMe is one of those apps that lets you connect your phone and a bunch of your friends phones together on a Bluetooth sharing system and allows you to play the same form of media, whether it being a movie, youtube video or a song, with the sound of each smartphone speaker synched together. How awesome is that! The next time your friend forgets to bring their speakers, Share it – AmpMe and let your phones synch together to enjoy a louder experience and have a mini party of your own.


3. JustDial or UrbanClap:

This app has it all, just search for what service you’re looking for and JustDial will have it! This app is very convenient since it’s a local search system and is better than what Google can offer, Google may offer a few services in your neighborhood, JustDial will offer all the services that’s around you. Showing you the distance of the store from you, the location and telephone address of the store, the ratings of the store by fellow customers, along with the images of the store. One thing to note is that JustDial runs on customer feedbacks and user details which are monitored by JustDial.

Another alternative is UrbanClap, another local –search app that is looked by the UrbanClap team and reviewed by them allowing you to have a tried-tested and trusted experience!
