People are always on their smartphones these days may be accessing apps or talking on the phone. We now have apps enabled with voice calls services like WhatsApp, Viber, etc. No matter how many apps you have installed on your device, you would be ultimately using your dialer app a lot to make phone calls via your network operator. And those phone calls can be more expensive than your average mobile data pack that can last for a month. The point I’m coming at is that there has to be a way to reduce the amount one spends on their outgoing calls. In fact, there is in a form of an app named SmartApp which has been launched today.
The Times Internet Limited (TIL) has launched an application that would understand your calling behavior and suggests you recharge plans on the basis of your usage. For instance, if you make around 2 hours of outgoing calls in a month and out of that more than half are to the same network, then it would suggest you a recharge plan that can cut the calls rates to same network calls and thus saving you quite the money.
When you first sign up for the app, it will ask for your mobile number to get started in setting up the system. Then, it will access the call logs and understand to whom do you make the call most. I understand it might be little creepy to give access to those call logs to third party users, but once you go past that you’ll see why it needed those details. In the calls summary section on the bottom of the app, you get a whole month’s summary of your outgoing and incoming calls. But what’s important in order to reduce your bill is focusing on outgoing calls.
Once you tap on the call summary, it will open a whole lot of options where you’ll see how many calls you’ve made in last 30 days. And there would be an analysis of average call duration per week. Next thing is who are your top outgoing contacts based on that it will understand which network do you make calls most. Based on that it will suggest the calling plans for local and STD. What’s more interesting is that you can select the plan and pay right in to get started on the plan.
This app removes all the hassle you would have to go through to find the best recharge plans. But this SmartApp does it for you and all you have to do is pick the plan and make payment. And you’re good to go. It also lets you refer your friend and earn a discount on your charge up to Rs 50. Although, it is valid only for the first recharge your friend does with your reference. Refer and earn works both ways, if you got referred, then you’re also entitled to up to 50% discount right away.
There are a number of mobile recharging apps such as Paytm, FreeCharge, and MobiKwik. But none of them offers services like SmartApp does, it may be termed as a Smart Recharge app, but ultimately what matter is that this app can reduce your mobile bills. So, start saving by installing this app now. Note that the SmartApp is currently available for Android smartphone users only.
