Whenever a question comes to my mind or any curiosity that I’m very eager to clear, I Google that doubt and my answer is waiting for me. So it simply gets 2-3 clicks for me to go through one brain to another. It’s even faster than the nervous system in fact. But when it comes to searching for the local business outlets, Google Maps are not the best piece of technology to rely on. They only show what people have posted themselves and therefore you miss most of the popular local outlets who have not registered themselves on the maps. So you need a local guide familiar with each and every corner of the town. But you won’t find that guide among the locals but a global head who is local to more than one such city. Let’s hear it from him then!

This “Global” local is none other than the latest Android app called Askme that has been developed by Getit Infoservices Pvt. Ltd. The app is compatible with all the devices running Android 2.2 or any later version of the OS.

Askme is the all-in-one stop for everything that you need. Let it be a local Pizza corner, a bar or a swimming club; all you have to do is ask. It doesn’t matter if you’re in your own town or out of station because Askme automatically picks your location and refines the search results as per your locality. So no more will you miss the Daal Baati Choorma of Rajasthan when you’re happy to satisfy with another burger of McDonald’s.

Coming to the UI of the app, all you have to do is enter what you’re searching for and if there’s any preferred locality, you may enter it as well. Then the app will show all the available options with contact details and locations on map. So if you’re on your way to a city, you can book a hotel using this app. Moreover, this app also offers many deals on different merchandise, outlets, hotels, restaurants, etc. So if you’re about to book a hotel; don’t forget to take a look at their deals.

Another interesting feature of this app is the free ad section where you can post your free ads. Online trading of old items has seen a great boost in recent past and therefore this app has just given another reason to download it. So if you’re searching for a new refrigerator, the old one must be sold and this app serves both the purposes.


The app is simple to use and ready to answer your questions. But the search engine of the app is not as perfect as Google. If you don’t know exactly what you’re searching for, you might get nothing. A little clue will prove to be of no use. Alternate suggestions would be of great help if introduced. Also, the term ‘global’ I used before is valid only within the boundaries of India. Askme is not available for places outside the country.

The app is available for free in the Play Store. So make sure you check it out today!
