FreeCharge, the online platform for recharge, utility payments, promotions and couponing, has revamped its app for the Windows Store.
Instead of making incremental changes, the entire experience has been re-envisioned from ground up for Windows consumers.
The FreeCharge app for the Windows Store was introduced in May last year. These upgrades with overhauled UI are exclusively available for the Freecharge App on the Windows Store
The app is now equipped to pull out contacts that an existing consumer has recharged for in the past and also allows consumers to recharge in a minimal time.
Also, new users can add contacts to their favourites and recharge by simply picking a denomination. One can also pin each favourite to the home screen as a live tile.
Also debuting with this app is the Quickpay feature where the payment can be initiated from the same screen - there by achieving a true single screen checkout.
Freecharge - Key Features
- Enrol once and recharge in a flash everytime
- Use Quickpay for faster recharges
- Pin successful recharges to your desktop and reuse
Commenting on the revamp Kunal Shah, Founder & CEO at FreeCharge.in said, "We at FreeCharge are continuously innovating to provide differentiated services. With the revamped Windows app, we have aimed at creating a seamless user interface that is simple and intuitive. One can now easily recharge/pay bills in less than 10 seconds. I am personally inspired by the innovations the technology team has brought in."
Speaking on the occasion Harish Vaidyanathan, Director - ISV Business, Developer Experience, Microsoft Corp. (India) said, "The revamped Freecharge app on the Windows Store has been developed keeping the consumer in mind. The app offers various enhancements for the consumer that integrate well with the Windows OS making the consumer experience absolutely seamless."
He further added, "We believe that building consumer focused experiences for apps will further increase traction on the Windows Store. We are confident that the revamped Freecharge app will be well received by the consumer."
