Divya Discovers a nearby Drawing Class

Drawing had always been Divya’s passion. From doodling something or the other during her spare time to sketching simple portraits, she always took out some time for pursuing her passion. She always wanted to learn more but she couldn’t afford joining a class. Not because she wasn’t interested, but because she wasn’t from a well-off family. Sending her to school was itself a struggle for her parents. “When you study well and get a job, you can pursue your dream” her mom had always told her.

Divya was ecstatic because finally it was the time. She had found herself a good job and after sending home a part of her salary, she still had some left, which was enough for her to join the Drawing class. But Delhi was a big city and Divya had just moved in for the job. She had asked around in her neighborhood; most of them didn’t know and one who knew, suggested a class which was far away from her home. It wasn’t possible for her to join it as her work hours weren’t flexible.

That night, Divya saw a friend’s tweet about some Smiled App. Her friend had found a nearby restaurant which served awesome Punjabi food with the help of Smiled. Hoping it would help her too, Divya downloaded Smiled App and searched for drawing classes. Sure enough, the App listed out different drawing classes in her vicinity. It also had users’ review about how those classes were. Divya shortlisted the ones she liked and contacted the users who had posted about them through the Private Chat option in Smiled App. The users were really helpful in answering her queries. It was like a cherry on top of the cake to speak with like minded people and get their opinion. After discussing with her new-found friends, Divya decided which class she would join. She couldn’t contain her happiness, now that her dream of learning from a professional was finally coming true.

Few weeks later, Divya posted her first Painting on Smiled, with a review of her class for helping someone else like her.

College Fest goes smoothly, Thanks to Smiled

It is always a pleasure when happy users share their feedback. Recently one of our Smiled users wrote to us about her experience.

We always look forward to the college fest. It is one grand event and all of us work hard for it. The event may look glam but the work and effort required to take it to that level is humongous. We conduct many competitions as a part of the fest and it is the crew’s duty to go to each and every class to make announcements about the events and where they will be conducted. Though it sounds easy, when there are 20+ branches in your college and each branch has four years and each year has 3 to 5 classes, the task becomes very difficult. It used to take us one whole day to cover all the classes. That is for just one event!

But this year we had a little help from Smiled. We instructed the event coordinators to tie up the posters at the decided location for the event and then post a picture of it on Smiled. The students were to check Smiled for any updates regarding the events. They could easily follow the updates this way and it became easier for the crew too. Smiled App did save our time a lot 🙂

Bina Finds a Book Buddy in Canada

          Bina sat on the couch turning the pages of the novel. She had read it a few times before and had lost interest in it. But having nothing else to do, she chose to re-read it again. It had been two months since she moved to Canada with Alex. Soon after their marriage, they had shifted to this new place. It was all fine in the beginning – new place, new people and the frequent visits from the relatives; they all kept Bina busy. But as time passed and the visits stopped, Bina started feeling lonely when Alex went to office. She wished to get out of the house and explore the place but was afraid of venturing out on her own.

          Alex installed ‘Smiled’ on Bina’s mobile when she shared her problem. “Use this app and you will definitely find something or the other that you like” he said before leaving for work. Not having any other option, Bina opened the app hoping for the best. There were many Moments in the home feed which were shared near to her location. As she scrolled down seeing different Moments which had brought Smiles to different people, one picture caught her interest. Someone called Elena had posted a selfie. But what caught her interest was the caption. “Happiness is having a library near your house” it read. The library immediately piqued her interest and the location said it was in the vicinity. If only she could get there, she wouldn’t have to worry about spending her time alone.

          Bina marked the location and made her way to the library. It wasn’t as difficult as she though as the Google Map guided her easily to the place. Her happiness knew no bounds. ‘Now I really don’t have to worry’ she smiled as she walked in. Browsing through the different sections, she found Elena sitting in a corner, reading Bina’s favorite book. “That’s one of my favorite books” she said as she approached Elena. Elena was a little puzzled but Bina soon explained how she found the bookstore through the Moment Elena had shared on ‘Smiled’. “It is always a pleasure to meet someone who loves books” Elena said and smiled.

          The two bookworms spent the next couple of hours discussing about their favorite books, authors and quoting some of the lines they loved. They parted promising to meet often, both carrying a book the other had suggested.

          “Finding like minded people in an unknown place is fun” read Bina’s Moment on ‘Smiled’ as she began reading the new book.

Atharv finds a Coffee-mate while waiting at the Airport

         Atharv smiled as he caught sight of his reflection in the mirror. The hair stylist was right; this haircut did suit him. It made him look more boyish. It was while admiring his reflection in the shop’s mirror at the airport, that he first saw her. She was at the other end of the corridor, riding the escalator. She was beautiful! And she was looking at him!! Smiling too!!! Atharv turned around to see her but she had her head down already, searching something in her bag. Had he imagined it or did he really see her smiling at him when he was checking out his reflection? He wasn’t sure.

         Atharv hurried, not wanting to be late for the flight, only to find out his flight was delayed by an hour. Having ample time at hand, he decided to have some fun. ‘Selfie first’ he thought as he opened ʻSmiled Appʼ. Once he posted the moment on ʻSmiled App’, he sat watching people around him. There were some departing from loved ones and some meeting their beloved. ‘Airports are always full of action’ Atharv thought. His mobile beeped. ‘Angela smiled at your moment’ read the notification. He was excited when he saw the picture of Angela. It was the same girl whom he had seen in the reflection; the girl who had smiled at him.

        ‘Hi Angela.. I think I saw you around here few minutes ago’ Crossing his fingers, Atharv hit send. ‘Yes Yes! Weren’t you the one who was standing by the shop and admiring his profile’ came the reply before he could fret too much. ‘Well.. You have time for a coffee?’ Atharv asked hoping she did. ‘I still have an hour for my flight. So coffee is not a bad idea’ Angela replied.

          So the new friends met in the coffee shop. “I am sure I saw you smiling at me back there” Atharv said as they ordered their coffees. The conversation turned fun as they discovered they had similar interests. And before they knew, it was time for their flights. “Let’s keep in touch” Atharv said as he posted their selfie on ‘Smiled’. Few minutes later, his mobile beeped again. It was Angela. “The haircut does look good by the way” it read.

Jennifer relishes the Scuba Diving Experience

          Jennifer held her breath as she looked around. This was it – Purple Rock, the place she wanted to visit the most!! Scuba diving was something she had on her bucket list from a long time and she had heard Purple Rock in Thailand was a great place to start with. So when she was planning her vacation, it didn’t take her long to decide the place. And that is how she had ended up in Thailand, all the way from Paris, to fulfill her dream.

          But once the initial excitement waned off, Jennifer wished she had some company. She hadn’t thought twice before setting out alone on this vacation but now, standing alone on a foreign land, she wished she had someone to talk to; someone who could guide her. She was deliberating whom to approach when she saw a couple using “Smiled App” to share their experience at the place. Jennifer smiled. Of course, she didn’t have to worry!

           Jennifer opened “Smiled App” to see how many people had shared positive moments in that location. Soon the app displayed a list moments shared by people who had visited the place recently. While scrolling down through the list, one particular image caught her fancy. It was shared the previous day by someone called Andrew. Jennifer pinged him on the ‘Smiled Appʼ to know more about it. Andrew was eager to share his experience with Jennifer. He was also a tourist who shared Jenniferʼs love for Scuba Diving. Jennifer was delighted to find someone with similar interests. Andrew told her that he had such a wonderful time the previous day that he was planning to go for Scuba Diving again the next day. He even offered Jennifer to go together as that would allow them to share the boat fare. Jennifer was elated. Sure, Scuba Diving was fun on its own, but having a company to enjoy it with, was like a cherry on top of the cake. She readily agreed. Just when Jennifer thought that the day couldn’t get any better, her cellphone beeped. It was a message from the local boat shop stating the discount on boat rides this holiday season. It was the same one that Andrew spoke about. Jennifer was quick to claim the discount coupon

          The next day, the new friends met at Purple Rock. They enjoyed exploring the world under water together. Andrew admitted that it was more fun than the previous time as he had company. And of course, they shared this moment on ʻSmiled Appʼ for it was this app that had helped them find each other in this new place.

Rahul discovers Spicy Punjabi food with Sweet girl Jaspreet

           It was a new day and a new beginning for Rahul. It had been a week since he moved to Bangalore but settling in hadn’t been easy. Most of the things he could manage but food? Finding some authentic Punjabi food in this city had been a challenge for him. The menus of the restaurants promised him what he wanted but when the food was served, it was totally different from the images shared on their websites. Rahul was disappointed.

           “Why donʼt you use the Smiled App?” his colleague suggested when he heard Rahul’s story.“You can see recent images uploaded by the customers as opposed to the fancy images uploaded by the restaurant owners” he said. Rahul was skeptical as once he had been to a restaurant after seeing an image uploaded by a customer but what he was served looked totally different from the image. Upon enquiring, he was told that the cook had changed since then. “No wonder. Itʼs been almost six months since that image was uploaded!” he thought as he recalled that incident. “Give it a try. It gives you only recent updates” his friend insisted. “I have already tried so many apps. No harm in trying this too” Rahul thought.

            As soon as he opened the app, he was presented with a variety of images uploaded by the foodies in his locality. He noticed one thing ‒ they were all recent images. One particular image caught his fancy. It was uploaded by some girl named Jaspreet. The food looked delicious. “If only it tasted as good” he thought. Just when he was about to close Smiled, he got a coupon from the restaurant. “Book a table for two and you will get 10% off on the bill. Coupon valid only today” it read. Now Rahul had one more reason to explore that restaurant. He hesitated for a moment before he pinged Jaspreet asking about that particular restaurant. Jaspreet was quick to respond. She assured him that the food was good and she had uploaded the image just the previous day.Being a Punjabi, she understood Rahulʼs dilemma. She told him that she visited this restaurant almost every day for lunch. This time Rahul was quick to ask if he could join her.

            Rahul smiled as he recalled the dayʼs events. The lunch had been fabulous. Not only was the food good but he had also made a new friend, all thanks to the ʻSmiled Appʼ. And all this with a discount too. He, for once, was looking forward to the next day so that he could explore new food joints again.
