The smartphones have become the life line in current times, the penetration of these phones is growing rapidly. Just the other day I was watching a you tube video where a toddler girl was trying to pinch a nice photo on the cover of a fashion magazine to zoom it, this clearly shows how much even kids love the phones and the apps and are moving away from the print media. More often than not I use my phone to Google loads of stuff, find restaurants, ingredients for my cooking, find services for my home, find deals to buy and the list goes on. I’ve been thinking what it would be to get an app that could do this all for you, and Getit Infoservices Pvt. Ltd. have done just that. They have released an app called ASKME which is really “The BAAP of all apps”.
The moment you install the app, it would become an integral part of your android device. The app gives you deals, searches anything that you may need from places to services, gives an option to post an ad, post a deal or shop on askmebazaar.com.
The app uses your GPS location from the phone to give you the most convincing results in your city or town. I tried searching for Kerala Restaurants in Bangalore and it gave a long list of them. What I really loved is that with just a tap on the right of each result, I could call the place I want to, which is a huge value add to the whole experience. For each of the results, it also gives a description of their products and services.
The Main screen also gives a featured deal and many more once you click through. Buying items on deals is fairly new to the Indian market however it is a much accepted way of shopping in the west. With this app, this market is sure to get a boost.
The next feature I tried was posting an ad, which I’ve done on some of the other apps as well, however combining this feature as a single app is what I liked. Within a matter of a minute I was able to post an ad which starts to appear on their website.
The askmebazaar is still getting formed but is a great platform for a market place easily accessible, it gives a menu through which you can search for items in various categories. I found an induction top, hand blender and various other cookware when I narrowed down on kitchen appliances. Just click on buyme and you can complete the checkout process right within the app. For now, it let’s you confirm the order while a representative calls you to complete the process.
