Five Game-Changing Apps to Make Your Life Easier

Because of the hectic nature of our everyday lives, we gathered five apps that would make your day go slightly smoother.

TableBlog

How many times have you picked up the phone to reserve somewhere and you either can’t hear the person on the other side of the line, they don’t pick up, or you reserve but they end up forgetting to put your name in the reservations list? TabeBlog has got you covered! TableBlog, which launched in January 2017, is a robot based application in which people can reserve for restaurants as well as review them. TabeBlog is not only introducing a new concept in Egypt, which is online on-the-go restaurant reservations, but they are also introducing a new concept in the arena of online-restaurant reservations, since people reserve via a chatbot.

As Aly Dabbous, co-founder of TableBlog, puts it, “a robot doesn’t sleep, a bot doesn’t have certain working hours, a bot doesn’t forget to answer a phone call or reply to a message, a bot is at your service anywhere and anytime.” Therefore, it is a win-win situation for the restaurant as well as the diner. In the coming months, the founders of TableBlog are planning to capitalize on the latest in machine learning and artificial intelligence to build the ultimate F&B virtual assistant at the tip of everyone’s fingers. “Marvin (the robot) will be the go-to, know it all, virtual assistant for any food related activity,” said Dabbous.

Dice Competitions

Dice Competitions is a mobile application that gives Middle-Easterners the opportunity to predict the outcomes of football games while rewarding them with prizes based on their guesses. They provide the opportunity for users to predict the outcomes of football games across the Egyptian League, English Premier League, Spanish La Liga, UEFA champions league, African Champions League, and many others. During their launch in the 2016 Euro Cup tournament in France, they held the first competition of its kind in the region, and the winners of the competition won tickets to the Germany vs France game – flight tickets and accommodation included. They’re hosting the biggest football predictions competition with over 2,000 prizes for the 2017/18 seasons and have revamped the entire platform.

Darresny

Tired of calling your friend and asking about a good tutor? Darresny, an education platform, launched in September 2016 with the aim of being the largest one-stop platform for students to gain access to notes, books, reviews, and more for their universities. Their goal is to offer a one-stop shop for their educational data, as well as a platform for students to connect with the best tutors around them, at an affordable rate. It was developed due to the lack of structure surrounding the Egyptian educational market. To date, they have amassed a database of over 20,000 Egyptian professors across the country’s most populated universities. They are soon to launch the Daressny scholarship program where they will help students attain financial aid to attend the universities they want.

Duolingo

The Duolingo Application has made learning a new language a lot more easier and fun. Now, you do not need to go to those crowded centers in Egypt and sit among 100 other people, to learn a new language or enhance one you already know. Thanks to Duolingo, this could effectively be done at home.

No matter what your age is, or where you live, Duolingo is freely accessible to everyone. You just have to pick a language you would like to learn, and enjoy a variety of creative and entertaining activities that will help you turn into a native speaker in a short period of time. Try it now before summer, and learn the language of the country you’re traveling to soon!

Insanity

Almost everyone struggles those days to find time to go to the track or gym and exercise. Due to the busy schedules we all have, most of us skip sports and just go back home to eat,sleep and rest. But now, with insanity, you can easily get back on track and exercise daily, despite everything. The insanity application helps you exercise everyday, anywhere. You just download the app on your phone, and you’ll automatically be given a program that fits your sex, weight, and fitness level. Video and audio guidance demos are available to insure you are doing the exercises correctly. You also have a chart that will allow you to analyze your progress daily.
