We’ve always been firm believers of sharing files, but what about fun? The team at Zapya is proud to announce the launch of our Bollywood Movie Quiz – an exciting game that tests your knowledge and history of Bollywood at the same time.
Few events in filming history have the potential to generate as much excitement and global media coverage as this week’s Oscars. With a whopping 33 million viewers eagerly waiting to see their favorite directors, actors, and actresses admitted to the Academy, the 2017 Oscar did not disappoint – save for one huge mix up.
In keeping with our mission to make file sharing faster, easier, and more accessible, the team here at Zapya is pleased to announce the release of version 4.7, an upgrade that provides a few new features. So what are these new features?
First of all, the team incorporated new animations to the user interface to help first-time users understand Zapya’s core functions, such as file sharing. If users ever need to consult these animated instructions again, they can refer to them in the User Guide.
Secondly, Zapya wants to make sure that users from across the smartphone spectrum have easier access to the best speeds. To that end, Zapya has the option that enables users whose phones have the requisite capability to access speeds of 5GHz. Generally, the default speed is set at 2.4GHz; however, if your mobile supports 5GHz, simply go to the settings to enable the feature – simple as that!
It is important to point out only devices that support high speed mode can connect and share files at a higher rate. To make things simpler, Zapya has incorporated a new icon and notification that informs users whether the device can support high speed mode or share at a higher rate.
These are all new ways that we try to make Zapya an easy to use app that helps users share everything from files to fun, whether you are near or afar! We will keep working towards new ways to make file sharing fun and easy for our users.
Love is in the air this week as the world comes together to celebrate Valentine’s Day, also known as Saint Valentine’s Day. Whether it is exchanging gifts and roses or hugs and kisses, Valentine’s Day is a special occasion where young and old can come together and share joy. This week, we thought it would be nice to see how Valentine’s Day is celebrated in different parts of the world.
The accepted norm in some parts of the world is that an exchange of gifts or cards occurs between partners. However, in Japan, a different tradition seems to have emerged. Unlike western countries, gifts such as greeting cards, candies, flowers, or dinner dates are uncommon. Instead, females usually gift chocolates to those they hold dear. During Valentines season, it is reported that Japanese chocolate companies make half their annual sales during this time of the year – that’s a lot of Chocolate!
In Chinese, Valentine’s Day is called lovers’ festival (simplified Chinese: 情人节; Mandarin: Qīng Rén Jié). The “Chinese Valentine’s Day” is the Qixi Festival, celebrated on the seventh day of the seventh month of the lunar calendar. It commemorates a day on which a legendary cow herder and weaving maid are allowed to be together.
Denmark and Norway:
In Denmark and Norway, Valentine’s Day (or Valentinsdag) has its own unique twist. Men usually send funny little poems or rhyming love notes to women anonymously on Valentine’s Day, giving them only a clue as to the number of letters in the senders name, represented by a dot for each letter. The recipient must then guess who sent her the card. If she guesses correctly she wins an Easter Egg on Easter later that year and if she’s stumped as to who her secret admirer was, she owes him an egg instead which is collected on Easter.
The team here at Zapya hopes that everyone had an enjoyable Valentine’s Day with friends and loved ones.
As January comes to a close, the team here at Zapya would like to wish its friends, near and afar, a very Happy Chinese New Year. We thought it would be nice to give our users a brief historical breakdown of the holiday, and how we celebrated Chinese New Year here in Beijing.
Zapya proudly presents a movie of the month – “OK Jaanu (English: OK Darling)”, is a 2017 Indian romantic drama film directed by Shaad Ali.
As we settle into the New Year, the team here at Zapya thought it would be nice to compile a list of fun activities to look out for in 2017. Whether you want to travel or catch your favourite movie, we have you covered. Continue reading “Zapya’s 2017 Lineup: Sports, Movies, and Travel”
