Micromax is doing everything to be a top brand. From a series of Ninja Superfone Android phones launches in quick succession in last two months, Micromax has expanded its Android smart phones product line in all segments including one with large display screen (formerly called as phablet phone).
Micromax Funbook P300 is not just the Android tablet offered by Micromax but it has recently announced Micromax Funbook Pro, a 10.1 inches tablet and successor Funbook P300 has been spotted dubbed as Funbook Alpha P250. All these products from Micromax come with the price tag of affordability and they are of good quality as well unlike the cheap Indian manufacturers. Even though Micromax is from the same category but over the time, Micromax has been evolved to produce quality devices keeping the price in the range of affordability and Funbook tablet is the better example of it.
Micromax tablets and phones are powered with Google Android OS and so they get Google Play Store access. Through Google Play Store one can easily browse through the beautifully organized catalog of free, paid apps. These apps are nothing but the tools, widgets, software’s and games by authorized publishers packed with easy installation and management. Google Play Store right now has more than 1.1 millions apps available. We are happy to learn that Micromax has taken a step forward towards the customer satisfaction by introducing dedicated Micromax apps. These apps truly enhance the Funbook & Funbook Pro user’s experience. Micromax as Android publisher with name MLABS has launched couple of apps dedicated for their tablet. By launching this, Micromax has certainly done the right thing as to include their dedicated apps in the Google Play Store itself.
The following are the Micromax dedicated apps available on the Play Store listing –
miBuddy is the Buddylocator helps to locate friends who wants to share location. Using this application on tablet PC or mobile phone, one can easily trace your friend’s location.
miBuddy allows you to add friends from your phonebook and view their location after mutual agreement to share. The information location on this app is delivered from your service provider rather than the internet information and it’s compatible with 2G and 3G network.
Download miBuddy from Google Play Store.
Using this application on your Micromax Funbook P300 and Funbook Pro P500 tablet one can easily. The app provides education content, games, movies and other dedicated Micromax content out of the box. This requires Micromax user ID and password to get access and this is provided to Funbook customers when you register your product with Micromax.
If you have a Funbook tablet then call customer care and get your login credentials. So this limits the use of the apps to other devices. You can download it from Google Play Store.
As the name indicates it’s a SMS application but it’s not actually or we might see SMS support coming up in the future developments. As the description says this is a free app for high resolution devices works only on Wi Fi. Mlabs has introduced this for Micromax tablets only.
As we go through this app this is just a chat application where it should need the same app installed on other tablets.

miSMS is same as that of miSMS available for Micromax tablets, but this is for only Micromax powered smart phones. It allows users to send SMS on GPRS connectivity or Wi Fi connectivity as well. You are not charged on your carrier plans. You can call contacts from your phonebook and this is similar to Whatsapp but here the receiver should have also installed miSMS app on their mobile phone. Maybe that is the reason why this app is available open for any device installation. This app doesn’t require any separate sign in.

We don’t know why these are called as dedicated apps for Micromax tablet as these apps are available for all smart phone of any brand. We might see limitations applied very soon but until now these apps are available on any smart phone from any brand. Surprisingly there is no official announcement from Micromax team about the availability of these apps. We might see many more apps been added by Mlabs in the coming days.
