Organizing removal and domestic delivery services or courier is fraught with time-consuming headaches, as you flounder with phone calls and copious quotes. What if there was a service available where you could state your needs in a couple of clicks and wait for the quotes to come to you? Then you will love FastVan.

Launched already in South Africa and available Nationwide, FastVan is an exciting labour-saving app, which allows users to gather instant quotes, compare prices and book courier, local delivery and removal services tailored to their needs at the touch of just a few buttons.

The new app is available to download from Google Play and Play Store, for iOS and Android devices (with a desktop version launching in July 2016) has been designed to save users time, money and effort, while helping couriers and removal companies to reach a new customer base. In allowing users to specify the exact details of the items that they want transported – size, shape, weight for couriers, a furniture inventory for removal – and where they wish the goods to be moved from and to, the app lets potential service providers create bespoke quotes. The customers can then compare services and accept or reject the quotes accordingly.

With the ability to book multiple orders and track all deliveries as they go along, from collection to drop-off, FastVan keeps customers in control, while an in-app rating system allows customers to shape the quality of the service with honest feedback, keeping standards high.

Working with ewallet, the app ensures all payments are made safely and digitally, with no need for physical money to change hands at the point of collection – this means the customers are protected from undisclosed fees, and the service providers need not carry money around with them. ewallet also allows customers to add funds directly to their FastVan account for instant payment and imposes no transaction charges, and with instant access available, users can easily stay in control of their finances. For added flexibility, users can also pay via credit and debit card.

The long wait is over, with the new Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ due to hit local stores, today, May 5.

The smooth, bezel-less Infinity Display of the new smartphone enables users to see and do more than ever before, while the smooth lines and ergonomic curvature of the device, ensures that the phone looks great and fits comfortably into your hand.

These latest designs are available with either a 5.8-inch or 6.2-inch display and come with an upgraded 8MP F1.7 front camera, complete with smart autofocus. In addition, there is a 12MP F1.7 Dual Pixel rear camera, delivering enhanced multi-frame image processing, for sharper photos, even in low-light environments.  “The phone is also water and dust resistant, making it ideal for South Africans, as we tend to spend a lot of time outdoors.

This means users have the freedom to explore, stay connected and capture their adventures,” says Craige Fleischer, Director of Integrated Mobility at Samsung South Africa. Security is of paramount importance and the Galaxy S8 and S8+ come with enhanced biometric capabilities, including an advanced iris scanner and facial recognition technology, as well as the advanced Samsung KNOX platform. The upgraded specs of the two phones offer both increased performance and efficiency thanks to the industry’s first 10nm processor, Gigabit LTE and Gigabit Wi-Fi compatibility and the first officially designated Mobile HDR Premium screen. Samsung’s key partnership with Google Play Music will continue with the launch of the Galaxy S8. Users will now have access to special features created specifically for Samsung customers. In order to qualify, purchase a Samsung tablet or smartphone from the 29th of March 2017 and it will come with a free three-month trial of Google Play Music. Consumers will also have double the storage in their Music Locker and can now store up to 100 000 songs, not mentioning the free storage space and easy access to all music.

“The launch of the Galaxy S8 is complimented by an expanded ecosystem that features impressive new services and devices, including: Bixby, the Galaxy S8’s intelligent new interface; Samsung DeX, which provides a desktop-like experience for the Galaxy S8; intuitive IoT device management via Samsung Connect; expanded healthcare solutions through Samsung Health; and so much more. The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ are designed to allow users to see and experience more than ever before and to do so safely and securely, while at the same time enabling consumers to project an image of stylish simplicity,” concludes Fleischer.Customers will be able to obtain their device in a range of rich colour palettes, including Midnight Black, Orchid Gray and Maple Gold. Several more colours are also due to be launched later in the year.

The Galaxy S8 will retail at a Recommended Retail Price (RRP) of R15 499 and the Galaxy S8+ with a RRP of R17 499. Samsung Galaxy S8

The most recent update to Google maps has new features including an option that allows you to manually save your parking location.

While Google Now for Android has previously (2014) offered a “parking card” designed to help find your car, the service has been criticized for inaccuracy. Now, Google Maps is joining in on the hunt with a part of its latest update.

Despite no official announcement from Google at the time of writing, Androidpolice has noticed that users of the new Maps are now able to save their parking location, share it with another person, take pictures and write notes (meter expiry times for example) from within the Maps app. The tool can be accessed via tapping on the blue dot that indicates your location.
