Since the i phone has appeared, there have been many changes in cell-phones. Cell-phones have become more convenient and more helpful. It may be because of many applications. A smart phone allows the consumer to install and run more advanced applications based on a specific platform. Now we will introduce several useful applications.
One of many useful applications is ‘kakao talk’. It is like a messenger service or chatting. Thanks to this, it is possible to send free messages to people who are far away.

Next useful application is ‘Bus and Metro information’. We can know where a bus or subway which we want to take is located. Also we can know a bus or subway’s estimated time of arrival and service route. So as long as we get this application, we don’t need to wait for a long time.

Last application is ‘Where do you want to go?’. This application furnishes us with travel information. If you want to take a trip, you can’t do better than to use this application. It provides festival information as well as place information.

Actually there are a lot of other helpful applications. So the more applications you download, the more useful your smart phone is.
