Urban life has its own sort of needs.  Because the pace of life here dictates to run with time without losing action.

Imagine that the end-user is not connected with service provider which endangers both equally.

Technology by playing a catalyst role not only forges a better relationship but helps to improve the quality service at affordable price. 

I am living in South Delhi for the last five years and whenever I call a local electrician even for a small job, he charges me a whopping Rs.300/- per visit and I have no option but to endure the ordeal silently.   In another instance, I had to wait for a plumber for 24 hours to replace my burnt-water pump.   Getting AC mechanic in time is equally distressing especially in the peripheral areas in mega cities.

 But the democratization of information through Internet gives a real power and the buzz  now is, app-driven solutions to the services across the spectrum that confront daily life.

Once the  highly un-organized service market in India is now slowly being linked to the Web with a mobile interface so that the service-providers are at your beck and call  24 x7 that too for a price you need not bargain.   This app-driven business may change the future landscape of commerce in India.   
This soft power is truly rewarding.  70 + apps in my smartphone speak the level my dependency on technology.  Daily countless apps are being added to Google Playstore, some are free apps and some other paid apps but each app comes with a motto.  

In this blogpost, I am reviewing a free Android app called UrbanClap.  It is a 4.2 rating app with already 100 thousand downloads.   This app is made specially for city dwellers to get various services at the click of a button.  You can rightly say that it is one stop solution putting all urban lifestyle services under one umbrella.  With this app, you can effortlessly hire trusted professionals  at affordable rate,  hassle-free.

Presently, this service is available in Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Chennai and Bangalore, Pune.

When I checked the services available in Delhi, it shows a wide array services ranging from engaging Yoga  instructor to  Photographer, Make up professional to Birthday planner, Interior designer to Guitar teacher, Counselors to Tax consultant etc.
