Google Search application on iOS device has been upgraded with some of the great new features which Android users were already enjoying for the past few months and now the features of this application on both the platforms are same. They have added the feature of location based reminders in the application itself.

Google Now is usually used by the users when they are on the way to their offices as Google Now gives you the quickest route possible by checking the current status of traffic on the way. So, these location based reminders equipped in the same application are really helpful. Now whenever you are about to leave the house to you will never forget to leave the keys on the gate because Google Now will remind you of that.

All the iPhone 4S or above users will be able to do the ‘Googling’ (Google Search) with the help of voice commands. With the help of OK Google you will be able to set the reminders by the voice command. Example- if you want to be reminded of visiting a flower-shop whenever you meet your friend at Central Park, then just say “ Ok Google remind me to visit the flower-shop when I go to Central Park.”

iPhone users will also be seeing notifications from this application wherein it will intimate you when you will be missing out on any long awaited movie or game event or to tell you that there is a huge traffic logged on the way to your office. In other words Google Now has just gotten even smarter to help you in a better way. Please update the application to see these changes and take a look at the video which will explain you all.

BBM Finally arrives on iOS7 Platform [Download Link]

For all the BBM lovers who had to switch from Blackberry to Android in order to enjoy huge and good variety of application would love to know that Blackberry has not officially released their BBM application for the iPhone application and I am still not sure about the Android version of this application.

iPhone Screenshot 1

This application was revealed previously few weeks back but then it was dropped off from app store the other day. I still have that same version on my iPhone and now the app store shows me to update this BBM application. The only changes it displays is the iOS optimizations and bug-fixes though I cannot see any UI change while comparing both the versions.

iPhone Screenshot 2

The application is pretty simple to use for the Blackberry users. As soon as you install the application you will have to create an account and thus a PIN will be assigned to that account which can be shared by other BBM application users to chat with you. So, the privacy is highly secured and unlike other messengers everybody who have you mobile number will not be able to contact you.

Rest you also have message stamp such as Delivered and Read (which were the main reasons of making Whatsapp really famous). You will also be able to have group chats over the application and the download link for this application has been mentioned below at the end of the post. Please let us know if you face any issue or come across any bug while using this application.

Sygic India GPS and Navigation Application gets FREE for Android

Sygic India is an application specially dedicated to the road maps of India and let me tell you that it is really expensive usually (1599 INR). Most of the times I have users discussing on the forum to download the apk file for free of this application from other sources but the actual point it is that why is this navigation application is used by most of the users on smartphones even when they have Google Maps to do the same.

image

Sygic GPS and Navigation application try to take countries separately into their account and then create an application specifically for them. So, the amount of data related to roads, shops, small congested areas and other ways of transportation which are not mentioned in Google Maps will be available here (in short the information is highly detailed) but the UI is not that good and it is a bit laggy.

image

Because of that detailed information available in this application, the price is so high. The updated related to the construction of the road or blockage of any major road will be quickly updated in this application which is again not possible in the case of Google Maps.

Once you install this application you will have to choose few particular states which will be available on your phone. This application does not require any internet connection to operate because one you choose the state, all the maps related to that area will be downloaded and you will just have to turn ON the GPS location services on your phone and that will be all for this application to work.

Similarly at another point of time you can download the maps of some other states, this application is not free for iOS users and it is really expensive on App Store too (1599 INR). Please let us know about any problem which you face while using this application.

Line Messnger to Get Video Calling and Short Clips Sharing

We have already reviewed Line Messenger for you as we had a certain clue that this instant messenger has been growing at a very good rate because of the multiple features it provides in a single applications. I know that Whatsapp became famous because it something close to BBM which users on the other platforms like Android or iOS could also use it but again it was not the complete package and so the Line Messenger came up with the Voice Calling feature along with all the features which WhatsApp users are already getting on their phones.

image

This Voice Calling and the stickers were a great hit and since then the other messengers like Kik and Hike have also started using them in their coming updates. Now we have a great news for all the Line Messenger lovers and for other who are not using it can think of switching to this application as now it will start providing you the feature of Video Calling, which is really good and have not been seen in any of the Instant Manager application (except Skype which is never used as an IM).

image

Apart from this you can record the video in that application and then customize it to send it any other user which is really very cool, especially when you want to connect a moment happening in front of you with a nice and slow music which could really touch others. All of this stuff and that too in a single application.

It will be very obvious to say that all the features in BBM are covered under this application (having a wall and then privacy factors). Along with the features of one of the most popular IMs if you get Video and Voice Calling then nothing can be better to chat all the time on groups using this messenger. Please note that these new features will be coming for iOS initially and then for Android platform based devices.

YouTube Updated with Play All and Thumbnail Video Play

YouTube application for iPhone has been updated with a new feature which allows you to watch the video and then browse for the next video simultaneously. Once you update the application, it will update the new icon of the YouTube and then it will ask you to sign in again in the applications. Once get to the main screen of the application, you will see multiple thumbnail of the videos lined up vertically on the screen.

IMG_0450

As you tab on any of the thumbnail to play of the video, you will see that a small window at the right bottom corner of the screen will open which will play the video (you cannot move that window on any part of the screen). If you wish to see the same video on the whole screen then just tap that windows and it will be maximized over the screen or else you can keep scrolling for the next video you want see after it.

image

The UI has got little bit clearer and another new feature which we have seen here is the new Play All button, which is application only for the playlists. Now when you discover a playlist on your application or you have already saved one, then just go to it and then tap this button as seen in the screenshot. All the videos will start playing in the same order as they are available on the playlist.

So, these are the new features along with the new icon in the major upgrade of YouTube application. It has also been seen that the Google Maps application for iPhone will be coming with the integration with Waze and the upgrade is already out but unluckily we have not got our hands on it yet. Stay tuned to know about the new changes done in the new Google Maps and Google Plus.

Adaptxt Now Offers Comprehensive Words For Typing Help For Your Profession Through Their Android Keyboard

We have already talked about Adaptxt and we know that it has the feature of increasing the size of the keys and the making it colorful by customizing the themes. In short this is the best keyboard panel available on Google Play Store after Sline Keyboard application. But its seems that they have updated themselves and came up with some new features which includes the pack of pre-defined words which are usually related to the business world and cannot be found in an English dictionary easily.

image

Let us talk about these features in detail. This app provides 35 industry-specific dictionaries, which no other default keyboard has. Adaptxt users will no longer need to create their own dictionaries for their profession and can be saved by the torture of autocorrect. This saves a lot of time as well as money of the users. The Adaptxt legal dictionary includes more than 6,000 words.

image

If a professional takes around 11.1 hours to write 4,000 words over a year, then accordingly each word utilizes about 10 seconds including typing and overriding the keyboard’s correction. As there are a lot of associates and partners in law firms and government agencies with hundreds of legal professionals, therefore the time taken by them for manual entry will be saved, as time being luxury to them.

It offers 78 language dictionaries, uses artificial intelligence to detect unique words and phrases that each user uses oftenly and adds them to a custom dictionary. Adaptxt is different from predictive solutions, which simply search for a match and then automatically changes what a user type, resulting in making the user go back and manually correct the platform’s mistake. It is available for free on Google Play Store, each industry dictionary is available for 54 INR.

Skype Updated for Android with new UI and Unlimited Video Messages

It seems that everybody is running towards the flat look for their applications. It was started by Microsoft with their new Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 Operating System on the smartphone and this is somewhat copied in the new iOS version and now we are seeing something similar in the new Skype. Well the features are somewhat the same but the UI has been changed totally and so the ease of accessing the contacts and calling has been increased.

image

Chat section now available in the new UI of this application is somewhat similar to the iOS Messages section but it is good and now you will also have the option of getting invisible as your status. The best part is the UI lag which is no more there in the application anymore as it seems to be lighter.

image

As mentioned by the Skype team, this new UI has been built up from the scratch and as of now this is available only on the Android platform. No word has been said about the same update on the iOS but it seems that the default UI of the iOS is somewhat similar to this and thus the upgrade will be available once the iOS7 is out for the users.

image

Another best thing which comes along with this new UI is the new unlimited video messaging, which enables you to record the short clips and then share them instantly with our friends and that too for free. You can update your Skype application or download it from the Google Play Store.
