Mobile Applications To Find Blood Donors

blood-topBlood is Life. In our day to day life we overlook this fact but we realize this when we actually need blood for ourselves, for family or for relatives. While there is sudden requirement of blood in case of accidents and medical surgeries, in few medical disorders like Cancer and Thalassemia there is an ongoing requirement of blood every month for the whole life of a person. There is no replacement of blood and it can’t be manufactured in science laboratories, at least till now. Blood donation is the only available source of blood. 

There is a huge gap between demand and supply of blood specially in countries with huge populations like India. Finding blood donors is also not easy especially if you are new to your living place and don’t have any friend or relative nearby. There are blood banks in most of major hospitals but they also ask for replacement blood donors. Fortunately, there are few people working to overcome this solution with the help of modern technology. There are some websites to find blood donors which have released mobile applications as well.

Mobile Applications of Indian Banks – Part 1

Mobile phones have started to replace desktops and laptops in daily usage specially for accessing Internet and Internet enabled applications. People are using mobile phones for checking various social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn; for emails; for reading news; for reading books, for watching videos etc. This is equally applicable for financial and banking applications as well. In the first post of this series I am going to tell about mobile applications of three leading private Indian banks.

1. HDFC Bank –

hdfc_bank_iPhone hdfc_bank_android

HDFC Bank is leading private and technology savvy bank in India. It has mobile applications for Android, iOS, Blackberry, Blackberry 10, Windows Phone and Nokia phones. It also has mobile web application for doing mobile banking through browser. HDFC Bank mobile application has various sections which are as follows –

  • Accounts
  • Funds Transfer
  • Credit Card
  • Debit Card
  • Mutual Fund
  • Demat
  • Bill Payment
  • Insta Alerts
  • Others

I have personally used the application on my Android phone and I found the application to be very user-friendly and fast.

Download links for the application are as follows –

iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad –  https://itunes.apple.com/in/app/hdfc-bank-mobanking/id515891771

Android – https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.snapwork.hdfc

2. ICICI Bank

icici_bank_iphone icici-bank-android

 ICICI Bank has its mobile application with the name of iMobile. iMobile is available for Android, iOS, Blackberry and Java phones. As of now there is no application available for Windows Phone. It also has mobile web application for doing mobile banking through browser. ICICI Bank mobile WAP site is also available for non-smartphones.  Services available in iMobile application are as follows –

  • Bank Account
  • Credit Card
  • Loan Account
  • Demat Account
  • mShop
  • Bill Pay
  • iServices

I have personally used the application on my Android phone. Although the application is very useful but I found HDFC Bank mobile application better than iMobile in terms of speed and user interface.

Download links for the application are as follows –

iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad – https://itunes.apple.com/in/app/icici-bank-imobile/id375276006

3. Axis Bank

Axis Bank has mobile applications for iOS, Android, Blackberry and Java phones. It seems that its application for Java and Blackberry phone is same as I could not find it in Blackberry World application store. I also could not find any mobile web application for the bank. Services offered on the application are not as much extensive as of HDFC and ICICI as you can see below –

  • Bank Accounts
  • Funds Transfer
  • Bill Payment

Download links for the application are as follows –

iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad – https://itunes.apple.com/in/app/axis-bank-mobile-application/id517266358

Android – https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.csam.axis.activity

2013.04.05-08.30.21

If you are looking to watch Indian Premier League (IPL) matches live on your mobile then there is a good news for you. nexGTv is an application which has the official rights for live streaming of IPL matches on mobile phone. This application is available for Android, iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch), Blackberry and few Nokia (not Lumia) phones. Apart from watching live matches you can enjoy Match Repeats, Highlights, 4’s and 6’s, Wickets and IPL Masala on nexGTv application.

Best part of the application is that there is no mandatory requirement of 3G or wi-fi internet connection on the mobile, it works even on 2G connection. As I have tested the application on my Andorid mobile, the application itself is free to download from Google Play store. 

2013.04.05-08.26.23

I am not 100% sure but as I have checked in the application for viewing live matches you have to take their Premium Channel Pack subscription which is available for Rs. 75 for 30 days and for Rs. 20 for 7 days. So far I have not watched live matches on the application as I am not an avid cricket fan. But I have checked Match Highlights section and it works very well. There are few other channels also available in the Premium Channel Pack including Star Plus, Sony, Colors, MTV, Pogo, NDTV 24X7, Life OK, Channel V and many more.
