Swype – This is the most innovative touchscreen experience I have had yet. Swype is a text input app that uses the continuous finger motion across the touchscreen keyboard to predict text. Unlike text input methods on iOS, Blackberry, or conventional Android devices, this patented input method doesn’t require you to lift your finger while you type words! Even better, it learns & memorizes, and thus, predicts as you type custom words you had entered before. Check out Swype’s cool features here.

What’s-On-India: TV Guide (for INDIAN channels only) – Isn’t it taxing to sift through the newspaper everyday to look for the day’s TV programming? Plus, many times the programming is either wrong or is missing for some TV channels, because there isn’t enough space in the paper to print. Add to it, you aren’t always sitting in front of the TV. Well, this app is the perfect and accurate on-the-go TV guide I stumbled upon couple of years ago. You can also set email/SMS reminders, so you don’t miss out on your favorite TV shows!
