Find Directions without GPS!

Aug 28

So, I am new to this city & I don’t have any idea about the ways to the supermart, movie theaters, flower shop or a beauty salon, neither do I have GPS access, what do I do now? If I simply trust the auto drivers they’ll surely burn a hole in my pocket! So its better to be wise & get a clear idea of the place, the distance & the directions.

What? You’re finding this idea non feasible only because you don’t have GPS on your phone? So, this is where txtBrowser comes in the picture and acts like a savior :)

Let’s see how it makes your life easier!

- Fo Eg. you are in Jayanagar & wish to go for a movie, but you don’t know your closest movie hall, so this is what you do- Send ‘find movie hall in Jayanagar’ to 55444 (Airtel) 55577 (Idea)

You get results like:

2)Vision Cinemas at 44/1, Kengal Hanumanthaiah Rd, Kengal Hanumanthaiah Rd, Bengaluru, Karnataka, India

- The 2nd question is what time is the movie show?- Send ‘movie timing mardaani jp nagar’ to 55444 (Airtel) 55577 (Idea)

You can choose the show from following result:
