You Can Detect Skin Cancer through an App

Save Money While Sending New Year Greetings

Free apps are helping people to greet and meet. During festival days, the telecom companies charge a higher rate for sending greetings. For example any text message sent on 31st December and 1st January is charged at Rs.1.50 per message by Airtel. This prevents many people from sending New Year greetings to their near and dear ones. But this can be cleverly overcome by installing apps like whatsApp and Nimbuzz. But the catch is that one needs to possess mobile phones with Internet connection for using these apps. Only few people have such connections. But the advantage in these apps is that they allow users not only to exchange text greetings but to share video and audio files also upto some limitations in size. Other advantage is of course you can use them during festival days without minding about extra charges. In fact there is no charge at all in using these apps. You can also send free SMS messages through the apps jaxtr2SMS, Free2SMS and Textoo.

This is a very useful app as one can minimise lot of money by availing public transportation instead of hiring costly auto rickshaws and taxis who charge exorbitantly even for short trips. Many people are not aware about bus routes connecting different places. For example if one wants to go to Tondiarpet from Adambakkam in Chennai, the app will reveal that there is no direct bus route between the two places.

This is a boon to money-conscious people.
