Hello Smartphone users. Today I will be writing about some of the most important and mobile apps of Nepal. The listed 10 apps of Nepal are the one that I suggest every smartphone holders should have.
- Taxi Fares
I am mostly in bikes so I never care the taxi fares, I am not updated on how much it cost. I was coming back from Pokhara on flight and I took taxi from Airport till Jawalakhel, I paid Rs. 700(day) for that. Later I checked this apps and I found that it cost just Rs 348(day) and Rs. 576(night).
Taxi Fares Kathmandu lets you find out the taxi rates between places and prevents you from getting cheated. It features data provided by the Traffic Control Police and also a map view where you can tab two places and provided with the best route to drive and the distance and rates between the places.
