Two must have apps in Nepal

If you are living in Nepal I am sure I don’t need to tell you about it but if you are going to Nepal anytime soon, there are a few must have apps you should download before you go. They were really useful while I was there.

1. Nepal load shedding schedule app

If you are going to Nepal and you don’t know what load shedding is, then you really need to do a lot of research on it. I know power cut is really annoying but we can’t do anything about it so being smart might help you a lot while you are in Nepal.

This app allows you to view and track daily load-shedding schedule, set your load shedding GROUP, view the schedule along with Power ON/OFF status, remaining COUNTDOWN time, and the NOTIFICATION regarding the upcoming power cut. This was my life line while I was there as I used to check this app many times a day to plan when to have a shower, when to iron and vacuum and many other daily activates.

2. Flashlight

If you own a smart phone, one of the most useful apps for Nepal will be the flashlight app. There are heaps of different free flashlight apps for iPhone and Android and believe me it will be a lifesaver. You never know when the power goes out like while I was in the changing room of a shop and suddenly it was pitch black. Not many people have backup generators so the flashlight app came in very hand.

You can also use the light to guide you while out and about during the evening as street light are not always there or if there are some they may not be on.

Happy Traveling. Take care everyone ,
