Some days back, I visited a Cafe Coffee Day outlet with one of my old friend. Since we were meeting after a long time, we ordered pretty much stuff to spend more time gossiping about the good old days when we used to go to school. At the time of check-out, he quickly took his phone out and I noticed him talking to the cashier about some coupon code. I was curious to know what were they talking about.
When he came back, I inquired about it and he told me that he had got a free coupon the last time he did a recharge on his phone. I was obvious that the app would be either Freecharge or Paytm, as these are the most popular till date, but I got shocked to see that he was using some app built by Airtel. When I made a *wtf bro* face, he started down telling a list of features that his “My Airtel App” had, and this is what made me share it on the blog. Have a look at the Shake-Shake video going viral on YouTube and television. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R6gRfPTe5Lk The first feature that I liked in the “My Airtel App” was this I WANT TO thing. This has never been included in any sort of application that I have used yet, and it also made the User Interface much more human-friendly. You can easily buy packs, order games, record a program, pay a bill, recharge your phone or DTH or view the data consumed with this feature in a single go.
Another good thing about this application is that you get Airtel surprises along when you recharge your phone or do any transaction. These are coupons and vouchers for different popular brands like Cafe Coffee Day (so you can take your girl out without any hassle), PVR (do I need to mention that again), Flipkart, Amazon, Archies, Myntra, VLCC and many more. Other than these two features, the application hosts PCIDSS certification gateway for transactions which is considered to be the safest payment gateway for online transactions. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is an established information security standard for corporations that manage branded credit cards from the major card schemes including Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express etc. One can have a look at the balance amount left for use, and also get notifications when the amount is low. This is one feature that is currently not available in any of the third-party recharge application. This app has recently gained popularity and went buzzing in the market with a whopping 1,000,000 – 5,000,000 installs from the Play Store and with an average rating of 3.8 stars out of 5 where some 83k users rated it. One last word – The My Airtel App is a must have app for the airtel users where you can easily buy internet packs and other special tariff plans for International roaming and other things. All this with an extra surprise from them when you use it. And what’s more? Why not download-use the app, and tell us below in the comments?
