What An App: Here Drive

Here Maps To be honest I am that kind of a girl who will rather ask people about directions rather than depending on an app. To find the shortest way and get to the place in less time I would always ask either an auto guy or a shop keeper to be on a safer side. It happened to be a day where none of the above helped me and this amazing app called Here Mapshappened in my life. Will quickly tell you the exciting features of this app:

  • Its FREE to download
  • Gives you voice- guided navigation ( in around 97 countries)
  • It does not require internet connection to guide you ( Hurray)
  • 99.9% accurate in giving direction ( it will also tell you the by lanes )

My life is much simpler and easy now. Girls you don’t have to worry if you don not know a place. All you need is this amazing app in your life. Trust me this app has better direction sense than your partner 😉


What An App: Alphajax

imageThis blog has been dormant for way too long! I thought it would be a good idea to start a new series on this blog to bring the blog out of hibernation!

So the first app that makes it to the blog list is an app that I have been using for a very long time. The game Alphajax is inspired from the game of Scrabble and allows you to play the game in three modes:

1. Against another opponent on XBOX Live

2. Local to your phone. You and your friend to take turns on the same phone

3. Against an opponent on XBOX Live with an equivalent rating as yours

The game is addictive if you are a Scrabble fan like me. And the game becomes better if you end challenging your XBOX Live friends. Play your turn and wait for the other person to play again later. The rating system ensures that you pick opponents who are as adept as you. This game is under the XBOX banner, so you get XBOX achievements as well.

Verdict: A must game for Scrabble and Word game lovers!

Rating: 5/5

Price: Free

This is available on the following versions of Windows Phone:
