Airtel has launched the much awaited My Airtel App and being the loyal customer that I am, I got my hands on it as soon as I could. This app is the cornucopia of Airtel's products. It is a first-of-its-kind by any telecom operator in the country! All users including prepaid and postpaid can use it for paying bills, recharge, buying products etc. It also allows you to track all the past transactions and even your usage can be tracked with this. You manage all your DTH, Broadband, Prepaid & postpaid services in one place. You can recharge your DTH, track your account usage, track your service requests, buy products, and add your family & friends’ numbers and much much more. It is the APP for all Airtel subscribers. You can do all this using just your phone.
How amazing is that!
After using this app the features which really appealed to me are:
1. Airtel Surprises: This is just amazing. I think this is one feature that really mandates everyone to get this app right now! As the name suggests Airtel Surpises surprises you every time you pay your bill or get a recharge with a coupon! And not only just Airtel coupons but names like Gelato Italiano, Monginis, Cafe Coffee Day, Myntra, Flipkart, and many more are all included in the list.
So every time you pay your bill you get a SURPRISE!!! Payed you bill; here go get a coffee with 50 bucks off at cafe coffee day! Amazing!
2. I WANT TO! This feature is like a personal task bar. It allows you to save all your most needed/ most used features within the reach of a button. You can save your own shortcuts on the home screen under the "I want to". So anything and everything you want is just a tab away. No need to scroll though long menus two three times of a day just for that one feature. You can simply put them on your home screen and they are instantly accessible.
3. Safety: With Airtel one always knows that safety comes first. They are famous for their secure networks and this app lives up to every expectation. It allows you to add credit cards, debit cards, ATMs whatever you may want for faster payments. So no need to fill in your card numbers all the time and every time you have to make a payment. Also this comes with PCIDSS certification so you know it doesn't get safer than this. Even governments recommend this certification.
4. Track your bills: This is a life saver. No more end of the month heart attacks when you see you’re DTH or post paid bills. It helps you keep a leash on your expenses and keep the bank balance healthy.
