One of cooler apps I’ve found…


Services like Uber, Taxi Magic, Cabulous, and SideCar are completely disrupting the way we get around our cities. But almost all of them use private services, excluding the city’s public transportation. But a new startup has joined the pack of transportationally gifted companies, and (wait for it) with New York’s infamous yellow cabs. No joke.

It’s called ZabKab.

It works almost identically to Uber, except that the broadcast you send out when you hail a taxi appears on the yellow cab driver’s smartphone or tablet. You tap a button, and then watch all the cabs in your area move on the map in real time. Yellow cabs are available, grey cabs have a passenger.

But the genius here isn’t in the passenger version of the app; it’s in the driver version. To comply with Taxi & Limousine Commission regulation, the driver can not look at…

If you like to write, or make all these little notes about everything and anything. You have to get one of these diary apps!

Rubab's blog

When I was a little girl, I remember my cousins (male) making fun of a cousin (female) of mine on her habit of writing everyday stuffs in her personal diary. I grew up with the believe that only stupid girls keep diaries. After becoming a young adult, I realized that I should have made one for myself when I was in my teens.

Benefits of writing in diary/journal: 

1. It’s like a virtual friend to whom you secretly let your heart out without anyone knowing about your actual feelings. This helps in feeling much lighter and better than before.

It is never easy to keep yourself in shape. For lazy people like me especially. One of the best thing I’ve found in Android Market was RunKeeper. This is just one of the most amazing apps!

RunKeeper it’s a great widget for tracking your run, but also other sports, e.g. cycling or swimming. It measures distance, time, peace, calories and how these elements are changing over your run. Another cool thing is that the app is drawing your run on a map, so you can see or plan your track.

As its Andorid Market site says “RunKeeper also provides audio cues, customized interval workouts, manual entry for treadmill and other cardio equipment, integrated RunKeeper FitnessClasses and no advertising.”

All your data can be stored on, you can share and comment on it with your runmates. You can also share it e.g. on Facebook. Great stuff! If I would be giving starts or other rates, for sure it would get the highest one.

Weather is a tricky bastard – it’s changing all the time, so it’s better stay updated. In the other hand it is very fascinating, especially when is so mighty. Already Crowded House was singing about taking “weather with you” and nowadays smartphones help a lot with it. There is default weather widget in Android phones, but there are also plenty of better developed apps. One of them is Android Weather widget from Weather Services.

The widget offers wider range of functions and options to personalize the app. There are over 20 themes available for this widget; there is possibility to change colors, fonts and so on. Except basic personalization there is also possibility to select designed maps, units, names etc.

Weather widget is available in two versions – basic and pro. What’s the difference between them? There are more themes, webcams and some features available in pro version. The widget cost 1,39 eur, so price/quality ratio is very good. Widget provides views from tens of webcams, what helps to verify weather in selected place.

The widget is available on the producer’s website as well as in Android Market.
