Announced a few hours ago in Blackberry Live that the famous BBM Messenger is gonna be across platform app which means that iPhone & Android users gonna be able to simply download BBM from their App Store.

It’s a bold move from Blackberry to gain more users back on BBM but My initial thought that they are slowly killing themselves coz other than security Blackberry had this unique feature which now can be available on iOS & Android.

Save #Kuwait On Instagram

by Mohd in apps, Art, Bla Bla Bla

Yesterday out of boredom I searched #kuwait on Instagram and I hope I never did. All the pics were mostly out of Google, Cheap Ads, Food or texagram ( a stupid app for sharing Notes on Instagram ). Instagram gained a huge number of Kuwaitis since it launched and I won’t be exaggerating if I assume that more people are using it than Twitter nowadays. Twitter became a feed for sharing Instagram pics, with the huge amount of instagrams out there I thought that by searching #kuwait I would have been indulged by some awesome local pics but to my disappointment now I know anyone abroad searching for some images that represent Kuwait he will have a hard time finding a decent one.

Everywhere in Kuwait there is someone either posing for an Instagram pic or holding his mobile in a weird position trying hard to get the perfect short, not to mention all of those teens walking around in malls holding their DSLRs. All of the pervious observation and I would expect finding some decent pics when searching about Kuwait.

Of course I know no one would care about saving our country’s hash tag on Instagram by posting good pics, am I the only one who noticed this !!!

Would you even care about saving #kuwait???

Read Before You Buy The Galaxy S4

by Mohd in Info, Kuwait, Technology

Many have been taking the plunge into buying the Samsung Galaxy S4 without knowing some basic information about the device they are paying for. The Galaxy S4 comes in 3 different models, the Quad core model which come in 3G or LTE & the Octa Core model.

I asked a representative working in Samsung Al-Babtain about the available models here in Kuwait & most of the available models here are the Quad Core ones while the Octa ( 8 Core) model is gonna be available within a month or 2 at most.

How to distinguish between each model ?

The Quad Core 3G is Samsung I9500 Galaxy S4

 

while is the Quad core LTE is Samsung I9505 Galaxy S4

 

The Octa Core (8 core) model Samsung I9502 Galaxy S4

 

You should know which model you are getting before spending your money on something you probably dont want especially is you already own a Galaxy S3 you dont should not upgrade to the galaxy S4 unless you get the Octa Core model.

Nokia Making Fun Of Samsung & Apple’s War

by Mohd in Ads, Fun, Technology

Check out the latest commercial from Nokia trying to promote the Lumia 920 (Windows phone) while making fun of Samsung’s fan boys who most of them dont know that it runs Android :p  and Apple’s addicts.

We have seen this kind of approach last year when all of Samsung’s commercial were about the iPhone & few years back when Apple made their PC VS Mac commercial series, could this kind of approach work for Nokia & Windowsphone ???

قانون المخالفات المرورية الجديد “FAKE”

by Abdul-Aziz in Info, Kuwait, News

I don’t really see to where this country is going! “People” we’ve become Dumb, dependent & so annoying. YES the picture that were spreading yesterday about the new traffic laws is FAKE, note point #7 a “JORDANIAN Car” so someone with a below basic english language “he thought the word Jordanian is a verb.” & a lot of free time edited the picture &  swapped the currency and all.

An UGLY fact to highlight is that the host site of this picture is a STUPID, DULL & OUTDATED looks like “Official Governmental” site called ; Q8hosp.info, i actually don’t know which is more annoying that the fact they posted this fake news in the first place or that they still have it live on their site, exactly at the middle of this page –> Here

Technology is a bliss BUT not for everyone

TAP The Web App

by Mohd in Internet, Kuwait, Technology

How do you usually pay your mobile bills & Network’s provider subscribtions  ?

Do you waste your time going through different websites just to find a certain product & compare each one ?

Do you own a small business & couldn’t find an online payment method suitable for your customers ?

Im glad to announce that a new era for mobile payment has arrived. A new way to get away from all the annoyance mentioned above. We live in a mobile world where more than 35% of our time (according to some study) is spent using our mobiles & PCs and one of the most annoying things to do is sell & buy stuff online mainly because most of the local services don’t provide online payment through their websites, or if the do some are not user or mobile friendly, well thats all gonna change with TAP.

Last week we had a chance to meet Ali Abu-Alhasan One of the master minds behind  Tap, to get a preview of this new service that I believe gonna be a big hit in Kuwait. Aziz & I burned Ali with our questions and concerns & he answered all our question professionally & honesty. We are really proud of those awesome Kuwaiti developers behind Tap.

Tap is a web app that enables you to buy, pay your bills and sell your products/services online without the need to go to the official website of the seller. Whats really interesting about Tap is the ability to create your business/personal profile and start selling your products within minutes without the need to worry about security, all small businesses gonna benefit from this service and you the cunsumer are the beneficiary, paying your bills, subscriptions, buying stuff and browsing through various products while enjoying your coffee or being in your comfort zone.

Check the demo above and be amazed.

Tap is basically a web app which is much better in my personal opinion than a mobile app, you just log into it from you browser no matter what mobile you are using (iphone, Android, Blackberry) and thats the main advantage of a web app, just open your browser and you are browsing through an app-like interface. Tap will official launch on May 6th but the site is live now for you to preview.
