The biggest telephone mobile operator Airtel has billing issues which often turns the customer very angry. The customers also have a real problem in the sense that they have to get the real readings and I think this has a solution and they have come with a new app! The most important thing for me is to measure my bandwidth usage and that makes all the bill to be readable and make sure I pay within limits. And if you have an Airtel DTH even that can be used around here and you can pay your bills with a click.
Some of the features which I was impressed are here:
1. Unbilled Usage
The download and installation was breeze and it got my number and was showing the bill straightaway with my due date and the amount to be paid. One of the most important features is this and yes you could also see your unbilled amount and this will help you keep tab on how much you are spending. Probably one of the first features I would recommend. We can look at this part to know what could be the billing
2. My Data (consumption)
This is easily one of the best things which I could also look for being authoritative especially when we have different set of readings from an external app with that of the Airtel own meters if we could say.
GIves you a reading on the usage of the bandwidth on a day to day basis and lets you keep tab of the consumption.
3. Recharge any number
With more than 4 Airtel prepaid numbers in the family this is a great new way to recharge and get well get coupons on every recharge. This will be an easy way to recharge when the charge is out especially when it matters most during travel or when they cannot.
Other features include the using the managed services tab and making request. I think request will have a great response provided that there is a need fulfilled way of looking at it.
The overall interface looks pretty cool with the brand colors making it all more cool in a way.
