Tanishq, Tata group’s jewellery arm, has come up with an unique smartphone app called KarwaChauth app. There is not much of description for the app on the Android market but as per my understanding it works in a very simple way.
During Karwa Chauth, women won’t see the moon directly and need a sieve to look through. Tanishq’s Karwa Chauth app uses the smartphone camera, and when pointed at the moon it forms a grid (sieve kind of) around the moon and thus replacing the moon.
You know what’s cool? A Karwa Chauth app.
There are quite a few Karwa Chauth apps on the Android market and Tanishq’s app is from Karan Checker. Here’s the Android market link.
The app is recently released and has less than 50 downloads so far. Check out this app and see if had solved your purpose. But have a dry run before you use it for all important day.
There will be few apps which come our way which impress us a lot. Either through simplicity or through sheer ingenuity. Karwa Chauth app falls in the later category. There’s a lot of potential for apps in Indian context. And if you drill it down there is a regional pie to scratch. Tuk Tuk meter is one such app which is highly functional. Though one-dimensional in functionality I would place Karwa Chaut in the seasonal must-have apps list. Nicely done.
Tanishq Karwa Chauth app is available for Symbian phones too.
