Be it restaurants, Malls, Public transport or even pedestrians we see people involved in multitasking.

You don’t need to carry your bulky laptops all the time to do some of your lite odd jobs using your smartphone. Need not to mention smartphones cannot do high end computing tasks but yes, it has eased a lot of pressure off Laptops/PCs. Moreover not everyone owns a PC or Laptop but yes they do have a smartphone. The reason is well known-‘MRP’. You own a smartphone for as low as 5000 today.

Forgetting birthday of your better half can be catastrophic. Now you don’t have the courage to wish her so late. What to do? You decide to surprise her by a gift, a nice outfit or jewelry or a beautiful watch but you don’t have time to go out and shop. You decide to order a gift online. Unfortunately your office network doesn’t allow you to open Myntra website :(. Suddenly your hand slips into your pocket and you take out your…………………………….brand new iPhone 6 :). You download Myntra app from iOS store in less than cooking time of Maggi noodles:). You access Myntra mobile app on your smartphone and order the gift for same day delivery with a click of a button. You have your moment of joy. It is that simple and I mean it :) After a few minutes of relaxation, you again sprang up from your cushioned seat with a thought,” How would a Birthday look like without a cake?  My wife would kill me for sure?”. You call your friend and he suggests you to order from #fnp. Fortunately you have a mobile app for it. Finally you are through and have saved yourself from constant nagging of your wife until her next birthday. And all of this is possible because of Mobile apps available on your smartphone.
