I’ve gotten a lot of complaints on why the app isn’t optimized for iPhone 5/s/c devices and I know there was a big delay on the new interface update. What happened was the app was ready to be released then Apple announced iOS 7 with a complete new interface. So the app had to be recorded again from scratch to be fully optimized for iOS 7 with a new logo and interface. Anyway, it’s now finally here. Click on the icon below to download the app.
Since XCite’s website wasn’t optimized for mobile devices (theme isn’t responsive) it was a good idea to launch a shopping dedicated app on Google Play and App Store. It’s pretty much like having Amazon app except this one is from XCite. As you can see it’s pretty vibrant with a Windows metro looking theme to it.
The two features I like are the ability to see the daily deals and the store locator. What’s handy is you can always open the app wherever you are and see what’s the closest showroom from where you are. I had to no idea they had this many showrooms to begin with, the biggest one being at Safat Alghanim.
Something I didn’t like on their website is also on their app, the faulty search results. They’re sometimes super inaccurate and I have no idea how their algorithm functions. I was searching from Jawbone’s fitness wrist sensor called UP and all I got were a bunch of HP laser mice.
I ended up getting something I’ve been wanting to get for a while now, the Bose QuietComfort noise-cancelling headphones. I’ve been hearing so much positive feedback on them. I’ll likely review the headphone and discuss whether it really is noise-cancelling. They’re great for when you just want some silence.

Wataniya just released their app on both Android and iOS with some handy features. The moment you open the app it tells you how much your bill is and when is your next bill cycle. You can also add services and send credit to people. From what I understood it uses your data plan to collect information and is free of charge unless specified.[Android][iPhone]
I released the first major update to iOS which includes minor fixes along with some features. You can now search for any post on the blog directly from the app. Sharing tools are now built-in. Blog images appear bigger and the twitter back button has been added. I also changed the font thanks to those who said the default font feels like reading a newspaper.
Click on the logo above to go to the Apple App Store.
After long hours with developers the application is finally complete. The application has some tweaks we’ve added which aren’t familiar to most so below is a picture briefly explaining what those buttons on the side do. On the contact page you can upload images and send them directly to Kuwaitiful. The application should work on any iOS 4.0+ device.[App Store]
Feel free to post feedback or any suggestions on the application. The next update will likely bring sharing features to share the posts on facebook/twitter. Android users might hold on a bit longer, I certainly have plans on releasing it on the Andriod Market.
I’m pretty sure this is the first application to ever integrate Arabic voice recognition. Google has collected over one million utterances in Arabic and Hebrew. The application was trained to recognize Arabic from the Gulf countries so it should be somewhat accurate. I can’t download it yet, but I’ll probably make a video once I try it out.[Android Market][App Store]
I must admit I wasn’t a big fan of the mobile Android Market layout. It just felt there was so much room for improvement. I’m hoping this completely new design will be better. You can also rent movies now, though temporarily for U.S residents only. If you can’t wait till Google updates your market you can download the .apk file and manually install it yourself.
