The Most Innovative features in Android Jelly Bean is Google Now. Google Now gets you the information related to you. It tells you the weather and traffic info before you start your day, train & flight time, favorite team’s score, nearby tourist spot, etc. All of this happens automatically. The cards appear throughout the day at the moment you need them. The more you use it, the better it will become.
Google Now has over 25 different cards and more to come in recent futures. The only problem is that not all cards are available for Indian users, many cards are exclusively to US users only. To sort out the things, I made List of Google Now Cards which are available in India.
