Indians are inventing all sorts of stuff – as our cover story shows. When will someone invent these apps? Snitch:

Autowallah refusing short-distance fares? Scan his face and Auto Snitch will spill secrets about him, threatening him to comply!

Tipsy Text:
It’ll block all messaging apps when you’re drunk.

Connecting people who have weird veggies in their dabbas and want to go out for lunch, instead. Slayer:

SMH, TBH, IDK, TMI… It will read out your teenager’s messages decoding the slang and the acronyms.


Won’t let you use more than two hashtags at a go. #So #that #this #won’t #happen.Bhai Block:

Will show all the Bhaitards (Salman fans) in your area, so you can avoid them.

Selfie Stopper:

Every time you try to take a selfie, it’ll go, "The Internet Disapproves".

Moral Mapper:
It’ll ‘orange-flag’ areas sensitive to PDA. Finder:

Will tell you when you’re being friendzoned, by showing you the people your beloved has chatted up.
