India and its people are going through tough times. The Government of India's surprise decision to address the never-ending issue of Black Money by demonetization of Rs. 500 and Rs. 1,000 notes have impacted the everyday lives of citizens to an extreme extent.
Long queues outside the banks and ATMs have become a common sight and people are forced to wait for long hours before they get some assistance from bank employees or retrieve some cash from ATMs.
With long and never ending ATM and bank queues, it can get really tiring and exhausting for anyone to wait for their turn. While you must carry water and food for your body, your mind also needs some refreshment to bear the exhaustive exercise.
Why not give your smartphone a chance to keep you upbeat and help you utilize your time in a better way in those long queues? Here we have created a list of selective apps offering the best of entertainment, networking, fashion discovery and a lot more. Here you go.
The best possible way to rejuvenate your mind during the long hours of bank queues is to watch your favourite shows and movies. nexGTv, the video on demand and live mobile Tv entertainment app allows you to stream over 100+ live TV channels, Hollywood Movies, Bollywood movies, Bengali movies, Marathi movies, Tamil movies, Cricket, Tennis & Sports Highlights, Music Exclusives, Bollywood Songs, Reality TV Shows, and Videos on Demand on your mobile screen.
How can we not include YouTube in the list of apps to help you pass your free time? The smartphone app gives the access to the world's largest library of videos including movies, shows, documentaries, etc. covering all possible languages and genres. It will get even better if you have the reliance Jio SIM card to access the free 4G services.
This application really caught our eye because of its usability in everyday life. Imagine a scenario where you are standing in a queue and find someone sporting an amazing pair of sunglasses, jeans, shoes, or any possible fashion accessory that you immediately want to purchase. However, you cannot ask the person for the price and place of that product.
With Fashin, you can just click the picture of that accessory, or the outfit that you liked of the person standing in front of you, upload it on the app and discover where you can find the same outfit on all the fashion ecommerce website. Sounds cool? Try it.
Besides, the app also allows you to get the exact same styling by extracting clothing from YouTube videos. Moreover, the app further lists every fashion e-commerce portal providing the exact same item- jacket, jeans, tops, skirts, etc. to help you compare the prices and make an informed decision.
It's very likely that you find someone watching a movie or a TV show on a smartphone that you also wish to watch, while standing in a queue or may be while travelling in metro or other public transport. SHAREit is the app that will help you transfer such big files- photos, videos, music, installed apps, or any other files in a jiffy. With more than 600 million registered users worldwide, it is one of the most preferred apps for cross-platform sharing across the globe.
Besides, you can also download Xender for the same purpose.
