There was a time when our mobiles became smart and we entered a world that was so different and so new!! Then we thought what now? The answer to the question - the new apps that are Hell-bent on making the smart phones smarter. Take the new MyAirtelApp
Just download one app and you have access to all your Airtel services literally in your hand. You can recharge your Airtel mobile,landline,broadband or DTH,all with the same app. Amazing,isn't it?
I just downloaded the app and the 3 key features that best suit my lifestyle are:
1)I want to
The 'I want to' tab is like the genie who says,'Your wish is my command!'
- You can make and save shortcuts of the tasks you frequently do/wish to do and the genie shall remember it for you.
It is so much more convenient than going through the cumbersome procedure of switching on the laptop, opening the website,locating the option of recharging,entering details every time and then paying. This app even remembers your frequent recharge amounts which is so difficult for me to remember on my own.
-It reminds you when you need to recharge or when the bill due date is near.
-It alerts you regarding your data usage.
-It saves your card details for faster payments.
2)The 'shake' feature
Airtel has always been very innovative in its advertisements whether it was the one about data usage and video calling wherein a couple works in the same office and the wife is the husband's senior or the last one where a group of friends buy an ice-cream truck for the man who used to give them ice-cream for free as kids.
Once again, Airtel is very aptly promoting the 'shake' feature in its advertisement by using the sound of 'khanak' of coins as the sound of shake. You just need to shake your mobile to discover exclusive offers and use them to save money. I am waiting for the next shake...
3)Safe way to pay
I am not the kind of person who can stand in queues in various offices for bill payments...I just can't! The result....I end up not paying the bill and the service gets disconnected and then I have to request someone to do it for me.
This app solves my problems.You can make payments using debit cards,credit cards,net banking and soon to be introduced Airtel money. It sounds fishy when an app requests you to save your card details. This one though,does it only to make the process of recharging and payments convenient and fast for you. It is PCIDSS certified and thus a completely safe method of paying bills.
Other than the ones listed above,a couple of other worth mentioning features are:
Every recharge entitles you to 'Airtel surprises' coupons that can be redeemed at various outlets like food joints,garment stores,online stores like Flipkart & Amazon and many more. You are getting awarded for your convenience,how cool is that? This just keeps getting better.
Icings on the cake
Other than the features mentioned above, there are some more features that just add on to the joy of using this app.
-There is a 24x7 option of contacting customer care and getting your problems and complaints resolved at super-fast speed.
-The app can be used to buy a new Airtel product.
-Airtel's OTI i.e. one touch internet is a very easy way of learning internet for prepaid users.
-You can explore wynk'ing' and use it to download unlimited music and listen to it anytime,even offline.
Before you feel it is all too good,let me add here that using the app doesn't charge data usage to its users. Yes,it's true...you may kindly lift up the jaw that just dropped and go download the app
Experiencing is believing!
