Take a left, then a right, then again a left! Sounds pretty confusing, but it has happened many a times that we are left with no other choice than to direct our friends to our location in this same manner. In this tech savvy era ofcourse there are many apps that tell your location, but how many apps give you the directions from your current place to your friend’s destination. Enter Raasta, this revolutionary app captures your latitude-longitude and sends the link to the traveller guiding them to the destination effortlessly.
Raasta is very easy to use. Just locate yourself using GPS, Tag the place and the duration for which you want that place to be shown. Next choose the recipients whom you want to share the location with. Finally send your location via a simple text message.This entire process takes hardly a minute or two. There are no signups or lengthy forms to fill. Just enter your name and you are good to go. Another thing that we liked about this app is that the recipient does not require Raasta to view sent location. It can be opened in any browser of a web enabled phone.
Harsh Jalan is the brain behind Raasta. He graduated from the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow with a Masters in International Marketing. He comes from a background of family business of granite and lighting. Currently bootstrapping the app, he has designed every aspect of the application, from colour code, typography, logo to the intro video and also the website.
“I see it becoming a common platform for people sharing their location and guiding people towards their location. I also see the emergency agencies (police , hospitals, etc) giving us a mobile number to which people in trouble can send their location”, says Harsh
Raasta has enabled users to search and locate not only registered locations on the (google) maps but also places like your home or mine. So, now one can invite friends, track your loved ones late in the night, provide directions to your client before a meeting or direct an emergency personnel to your location quickly. All this with just a simple yet powerful app Raasta, available for both iOS and Android. Check it out now!
