Swipe Technologies, an Indian smartphone maker has been making a lot of devices at the low-end smartphone range. One of the most successful product of the company in the last few months has been, Swipe ELITE which has been sold exclusively on Flipkart.
Swipe pointed out that based on a report compiled by Vserv, it is estimated that smartphone users spend 169 minutes on average everyday their mobile device. A good amount of time is generally spent on using the basic functions such as dialing a call, looking through call logs, viewing and editing contacts, locking the screen and so on. Swipe has worked on simplifying and increasing the customisability of these daily used stock applications on Freedom OS 1.1.
Commenting on the update, Shripal Gandhi, Founder and CEO Swipe Technologies said, “In today’s fast-paced life, most of us are short of time. Given that a substantial amount of our days’ time is spent on our phone, it is important that phones become smart enough for consumers to save time on basic features. Apart from this, the “Freedom OS” is a visually intelligent User Interface that also allows a person to bring out their individuality and style with customizable themes and other exciting features.”
Some of the interesting updates noticed are the inclusion of DIY dialer themes, which allows the users to customize the look and feel of the phone dialer and a Low resolution photo filter for contact photos to increase sharpness.
