02 Minutes of Waiting, the smart bison of hotlines and queues
The site I want to wait (identified “Startup of the week by FrenchWeb in 2010), which references customer service or administration attendance tables, recently launched its mobile application 02 Minute Wait.
This offers attendance tables to choose the best time for an administrative procedure or a museum visit, as well as practical information on how to reserve tickets or find the right phone number. 02 Minutes of Waiting therefore brings together: opening and rush hours, telephone numbers and addresses, and time-saving tips.
The application is available for free on theApp Store.
FreeMute: mute commercials by whistling
Are you very disappointed that Free has reactivated advertising on the Internet? Do not panic, surfing the controversy developed by Free and its adblocker, the application FreeMute allows you to silence TV commercials with a hiss or snap of your fingers.
The principle is simple: activate the application when you watch television. As soon as an ad plays, whistle or snap your fingers, and FreeMute will replace your remote and automatically mute the current ad. An “increase / decrease the sound” function is said to be in development and could soon emerge.
FreeMute is currently only compatible with FreeBoxes and available on Android and should arrive on iOS very soon.
