It’s that time of the year again! Festivities, lights, mithai, family and shopping! Now, as much as you and I love Diwali, festivals in India come with their own limitations: traffic is bad, markets are crowded and pollution is at its peak. But hey, why let this take away the fun from this much-awaited time of the year? It’s Diwali, guys.
To make life easier, these 5 apps on your phone can be of great help. Take a look!
Diwali Greeting Cards Maker
Since rishtedaars are getting more and more hi-tech, here’s an easy and cost-effective way to make your personalised digital greeting cards on Diwali Greeting Cards Maker. It’s a free app that also works without the internet. Share images with friends and family on WhatsApp, Twitter, Facebook, etc. with more than 100 photo effects. Give it a try to get a smile on your loved ones’ faces. 🙂
Laxmi Diwali Pujan app
Laxmi Pooja is the most important part of Diwali and things can get a little complicated if you don’t know the ‘aarti’ and ‘katha’. But worry not, for technology is your saviour! An app called Laxmi Diwali Pujan gives a step-by-step process to perform the pooja and the rituals. You’ll find audio recordings of the Laxmi & Ganesh Aarti, along with the history of Deepawali. A pretty decent app if you’re not really sure whether you’re doing the pooja the right way or not. Do check it out.
Now, here’s hoping you don’t need to use this one. But for any medical issues on the day, especially if you have kids playing with firecrackers, Docsapp can be a literal life-saver. The app connects you with an online doctor who is available 24×7. Chat, send questions and get tips from the comfort of your own home. A must-have app during festivals!
Want to decorate your home or just get your house cleaned? UrbanClap will help you get the right person on your doorstep. All you need to do is send a request and a professional will turn up at a convenient time. Btw, they also have a Diwali home cleaning offer going on at the moment. You might want to give it a shot.
Diwali means shopping, shopping and more shopping. But, with chaotic traffic during festivals, this experience can get quite tiresome. So, why not sit at home and avail yourself of the best deals and discounts on shopping portals like Flipkart, Amazon, Snapdeal, and Myntra? And while you’re at it, use Opera Max to help you save internet data and even your phone’s battery life. Opera Max is an Android app that lets you save up to 50% on internet data whether you are on Wi-Fi or using a mobile network. Just shop your heart out (keep an eye on your wallet, though). After all, Diwali hai yaar!
