Go Bengaluru – App Review

Bengaluru as you know it, is a city that has congested traffic and the city is trying hard to have a good public transport information in-place. But little do we Bengalurians explore all the available options. We think we know every available options, but there is always something new. There could be a new bus deployed in the route. There could be a new metro line in operation. We already have so many app in the mobile and we now have to install new apps to get the information. Xerox took the matter in their hands and built the Go Bengaluru app. They already have similar apps for LA and Denver.


The purpose of the app is simple and straight forward. It get your destination and finds you all the available travel options between you and your destination. You can then go ahead and take an informed decision. The app will show you both Ola and Uber cabs from your vicinity and it will let you compare the options. It can also tell you the public transport option and guide you to the nearest pickup point. The app rates each travel option based on the carbon footprint. For instance, my work and office are 10 km apart. The app tells me that if I take a bike, my carbon footprint would be 1.3 KG of CO2, as opposed to 2.4 kg while driving my car.

Those these values may not be accurate, it gives me an idea. I can weigh other options as well and I can sort by timer, cost and eco-friendliness. Once you have chosen an option, you can go ahead and launch the required application and complete the travel. If your choice is Ola, then you can launch Ola app. If your travel is public transport, you can launch maps to navigate to the nearest bus stop or metro station.

The design of the app is very simple and minimalist. The visual language is intuitive and goes well with the concept. Go Bengaluru app is available on both Android and iOS. Web users can also access it from Go Bengaluru website available at www.goblrapp.com. Install the app from the Play store and let us know your thoughts

Smartphones hacking has become a very common phenomenon these days. According to media reports, the Home Ministry has declared that Pakistani agencies are sending out malware to mobile devices in India via a few apps to steal information for espionage purpose.

The must-delete apps include Top Gun, a gun shooting gaming app, Mpjunkie, a music streaming app, Badjunkie, a video app and Talking Frog, which is an entertainment app. If you have these apps installed on your smartphone and use them regularly, you are surely under cyber attack.

Once you have download an app, you agree to share your data present in the device with the app, be it messages, images or anything on the smartphone. Hence, the app can have access to your data, whenever it wants and might as well misuse it.

BIGO Live enjoys vast popularity not only in Asia, but also in North America, Europe, Russia and Middle East, slowing dominating the live video streaming markets in the world. 


Introducing BIGO LIVE!
BIGO LIVE is a free live-streaming video app for iOS and Android allowing mobile users to broadcast themselves and capture audiences to share their lives spontaneously via video. The app was launched on March 2016 and has immediately captured a fast-growing audience in the Southeast Asian region particularly young people.



BIGO LIVE gives active, young and fashion-forward people a place to find each other and connect, sharing their interests and thoughts about anything and everything making BIGO Live a great platform to start growing your social circle.

Major factors that contribute to BIGO LIVE’s massive popularity are, first, its core team strength and technology. BIGO LIVE’s platform has offered technology, talent and experience that support each other and is reflected via the product itself.



This is further supported by the appearances of powerful personalities who have adopted the platform to address large number of users. BIGO LIVE’s community has attracted personalities like news anchors who have in turn attracted hundreds of thousands of fans from their respective social media channels like Facebook. Such names include Lilly Luta, Dang Dung, Nguyen Huu Cong, etc. in Vietnam whose followers have helped achieved a record 9000 users in one BIGO LIVE room. Statements from sources at MIGO, a famous entertainment company in Vietnam, claim that most of their talents are also engaged in BIGO LIVE for updating their audience. Going over to Thailand, online celebrity Onboatz which commands an 80,000 strong following in Instagram now shares updates also via BIGO LIVE. 



BIGO LIVE is dedicated in creating a positive atmosphere as well as a means to become a tool in voicing out positive messages. Indonesian star Julia Perez shared her experience in fighting cancer via BIGO LIVE which garnered positive acclaim from fans which were moved by her tell-all session.

In other regions such as North America and South Korea, BIGO LIVE has also managed to make an impact with a wide user-base. A famous American prank star, Vitaly, has once broadcasted a bullfight that he joined on Halloween. Before the bullfight took place, he had even tweeted, “if I die, at least I die live,” inviting everyone to join his BIGO live stream to watch the exciting bullfight.

Dentists have also made their marks in the BIGO LIVE platform, interactive with users and sharing dental care knowledge, an act that has been applauded by followers from regions that suffer from poor dental care education or access to dental care services.

The BIGO LIVE platform has assisted emerging actors and actresses in engaging their audience which helps them to eventually land roles in movies and advertising. This has turned live broadcasting apps as pioneered by BIGO LIVE into one of the key tools in assisting growing talents to increase exposure and make themselves more visible.

BIGO LIVE has performed remarkably well in the Southeast Asian, North American, European, Chinese, Russian and Middle East markets and has since grown further outwards from its humble roots embodying what BIGO stands for: Before I Get Old. It lets users do something interesting and meaningful to share with a larger audience before they start getting old. It’s a young and trendy community and this is maybe why BIGO has crossed borders and gained its well-deserved popularity.
