Cab Caller-Japan version
Thanks to the GPS in your iPhone, with a few simple taps, you can call a taxi without having to explain where you are. This app is connected to approximately 10,000 taxis in Japan. I'm looking forward to this one-I hate trying to explain where I am to older men (they mumble too much).
Do you think you'll try any of these?
Have a great day!
Well, do you remember yesterday's weather? It was warm and cloudy all day. Don't worry if you don't, it'll be exactly the same today...and tomorrow...well, actually we may see some rain tomorrow (but late in the evening, if at all). Then Sunday the weather will cool down and it might rain some more...the thermometer will keep falling all week, till it drops down to a high of only 8C by the middle of the week...don't put your winter clothes away yet...
Here are some more funky apps that you can add to your phone to make it more useful...
Identify a tune that’s playing on the radio, in the background in a store, or even hummed by a friend with this app. You can quickly find out the name of the artist and the title, and works even when you sing, speak, or type in a request.
You know how tough it can be trying to speak to someone when you both don’t know anything of each others’ language. With SayHi, things get a whole lot easier. Speak into the iPhone in your selected language, then hear the translation in the other language you select. Using voice recognition technology, it figures out what you say and gets the translation, in a matter of moments, and supports 23 different languages. Just take turns speaking into the phone with the other person. Hopefully this one doesn't work too well...otherwise, I could be out of a job...ha ha!
Well, actually you still have to do the dirty work, but this app can help you stay on track by recording your push-ups routine. Just start the app and set it on the floor, and your iPhone detects when your face moves toward or away, hopefully when you’re doing proper push-ups. It even counts out loud for you, to keep you focused. Maybe it can also tell when you’re starting to lag and will psych you up.
This useful app might be just the thing for any user needing a quick translation. Use the iPhone’s camera to translate words between 59 languages. You have the option to hear the translation, if you need the correct pronunciation. You can also further search the word via Google, YouTube or Wikipedia.
Genius Scan – PDF Scanner
This app turns your iPhone into a simple scanner. Just take a picture of a document or some note paper, and your pic gets converted to a JPG or PDF, ready to send via email or the other supported apps.
