TFS on Ola

TFS on Ola.jpgClose to three months after Ola acquired the Bengaluru-based TaxiForSure, the Ola app has enabled users to book the TFS hatchback through it. Last year, after acquiring mGaadi, autos were introduced on personal transport enabler app for which commuters pay Rs 10 over the meter. The TFS cabs, which have been introduced across 26 cities, is only available for the Ride Now option, unlike the Ola cabs -- mini, sedan and prime. However, rides in these vehicles too can be tracked. The rates in Bengaluru remain the same as when booked through the TaxiForSure app.

Apple Music in India

The start of the month signalled the launch of Apple Music in the country. Especially after the planned release of its Android version, other streamers like

First of all, it gives prospective users the benefit of a free trial though they need a credit card or gift card balance to sign up. After this, users can sign up for either the individual service for `120 a month or family (six people) service for `190. Both rates are about 80 per cent cheaper than in the US. In addition to unlimited streaming online, it lets users just save music offline, on the device as well. According to an Apple insider, complaints received include local playlists and the songs that make them up getting deleted, bad artwork and duplicating or retrieving previously deleted music.

The app  lets users chat with blood banks close by to check availability of the bloodgroup. The free  app also hopes to create more donors by  offering them a free Lookup T-shirt every  time they donate blood or platelets.
