1. CNH Digital and the Most Downloaded Apps of 2018
The January retrospective was reminiscent of CNH Digital's new broadcast format and the subject was highlighted again in February. Less bureaucratic, the process now does not require the driver to go to a Detran station or need a digital certificate. The list also featured the most downloaded apps of 2018, WhatsApp news, tools to "spice up" couples' lives, and queries for PIS balance and Serasa Score on mobile.
The creators of Sarahah, formerly an anonymous question and answer application, have launched a new tool aimed at giving unidentified feedbacks to companies. Through Enoff, employees can send messages to bosses and human resources representatives without having to identify themselves. Thus, the platform becomes a reliable environment for reporting cases of harassment, corruption or adverse situations in the workplace. The service is available on iPhone and PC. Remember that Sarahah was removed from the App Store in 2018 after being used for cyberbullying.
