How I Work – 204 – Lookout

captureOur phones contain the most sensitive information and mobile devices are the new target for cyber attacks. Lookout protects private citizens and the world’s largest enterprises with intelligence from 100 million mobile sensors. Instead of using traditional methods of threat detection, Lookout uses machine intelligence based on huge amounts of data collected over the years – this makes it the smartest in the field.

Apart from smart detection of viruses and mischievous apps, if your phone is lost or stolen, you have the ability to track your phone. And if someone switches off your phone or removes the SIM card, you can even get a photo of that person clicked, along with the location.

So if you need smart software and hardware security, try this intelligent and robust solution. But a small price to pay for protection against growing threats to your smartphone!

How I Work – 198 – Google Maps

I have tried many apps for Maps but I always come back to Google Maps – very accurate and providing a host of features that are rarely matched by the other apps.

Apart from turn by turn navigation, now Google Maps also takes voice commands – once in the driving mode, you can ask questions like – ‘What’s my next turn?’  ‘What’s my ETA?’ ‘How’s the traffic ahead?’, etc. You have the option to explore alternative routes, avoid tolls and highways and also set your favourite routes. And in case you are visiting your favourite restaurant, you can even browse the menu and place orders, before you reach there!

Google Maps boasts of comprehensive, accurate maps in 220 countries, over 15,000 cities and detailed business information on over 100 million places. No wonder I keep coming back to Google Maps!
