Since Flipkart is the most popular online shopping site, the makers have now decided to reintroduce android app, to make shopping experience more intuitive. It hardly matters whether you shop via Flipkart.com or by native Android app. There isn't much difference between a dedicated app and web store.
Well, Android is the most popular mobile OS in India, so it does make sense to launch native Android app. Earlier also FlipKart had an Android app available via Google Play store, but it was loosely built. The updated app is tailored made for a smartphone.
Here are the highlights of updated app:
1. Easily navigate through different departments to find products
2. Search for products, categories or brands using text, voice or even by barcode
3. Quickly narrow your search using Sort and Filter functions
4. View product image up close with the zoom feature
5. Read reviews that other users have written about different products
6. Pay by Cash on Delivery, Credit/Debit Cards, EMI and NetBanking
7. Track status of items in your order
8. View recently browsed products and their details even when network not available
9. Share links to interesting products with friends through SMS, Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, Google+ etc.
10. Access your existing Flipkart account and saved user details
