Hey Montreal, there’s an App for that!


Kolt Productions (http://www.koltproduction.com/apps/) hasn’t been around for too long, but these good friends of mine have already delivered a few iPhone apps that are very useful for Montrealers.  Here’s a short overview:

  • Ile Sans Fil:  The app was just released and has had some buzz around it.  The app for the famous Montreal nonprofit organization has been created to help you find free hotspots quickly and easily for the greater Montreal area.  Ile Sans Fil develops innovative technology with a mission to position itself as a leader in the wireless industry. With more than 190 hotspots in less than 6 years of existence, exclusively volunteer based, Ile Sans Fil has truly shown how its uniqueness in the wireless internet industry. Today more than 125,000 Quebecers are using this free service.
  • CASHTrack: Find your bank’s nearest ATM machine! Simply select your bank in the settings panel and the ATM machines are displayed on the map in a snap. A must-have for Canadian residents and new immigrants looking for a place to settle down with bank services, CASH Track is the only application that locates ATM machines in all of Canada.
  • PingIt: The app lets you all your status on all your social network by using your Ping.fm account
  • iTax:  A smart tax calculator that uses the iPhone’s GPS to locate your province and calculates Federal and Provincial tax of any product you enter!  Perfect for travelers and immigrants still new to the country!
