FreeCharge for Windows reloaded

New Delhi, India, July 9, 2015; FreeCharge, India’s leading 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. With the objective to achieve speed and make the bill payment process simple, intuitive and minimalistic, FreeCharge has created enhancements to make the experience more consumer friendly. These upgrades that have revamped the entire consumer experience 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 a brand new “Quickpay” experience where the payment can be initiated from the same screen – there by achieving a true single screen checkout.

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.

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.” 

The app also has a feature of creating a voice card recharge wherein one can create a pre-filled card –that consists of a consumer’s phone number, operator details and denomination with a nickname.
