What is Hamro Patro?
The literal translation of the word “Hamro” in English is “Our” and “Patro” is “calendar” respectively. So, “Hamro Patro” translates to “our calendar”. It was the first app to ever include a Nepali calendar. They started as Nepali calendar mobile phone app but later added newer features such as a Nepali FM radio player, Nepali news, trending Nepali videos, birth chart, horoscope, Forex, Gold/Silver prices in Nepal, Vegetable prices, etc.

I have the android version of the app which is well designed with a slick material design aesthetics. I am fond of the home page of the app which lists the current date in both AD and BS at the top along with the time and weather. You can see the important upcoming events on the homepage as soon as you open the app and access trending videos and articles as you scroll down.
The app comes with a “day theme” and a “night theme”. You can log in to the app and access all other features such the Radio, Kundali, Forex et cetera from the left hamburger menu.
