There was a time when we had to go out to physical shops to get our prepaid recharge or to pay our bills but time has changed. Today, we like to do most of the things online, be it shopping, paying bills or recharging our prepaid number. There are a number of websites and apps that let you recharge your mobile number or DTH, pay your postpaid bills and one of them is Freecharge.in.
Freecharge lets you recharge your prepaid number, DTH, data card and pay your postpaid bills. Freecharge is very secure and they also offer a cool selection of coupons You can use either their website to use their services or you can go ahead and use their Android app, which we are going to review today.
The Freecharge app is available on the Google Play Store and it is quite light in size at mere 2.2 MB. Once, you’ve installed the app on your phone. You’ll be first taken to the login screen. You can either choose to use your Google account to sign into Freecharge or you can go ahead and login with your Facebook account. You can also create a new account with another email id you want to register with Freecharge.
Once you login to Freecharge, you’ll be taken straight to the main page, from where you can recharge your prepaid number, DTH, data card and pay your postpaid bills.
User Interface and Features
The user interface of the Freecharge app is pretty simple and in line with Android’s UI design. The main page of the app features four swipeable tabs: Prepaid, Postpaid, DTH and Datacard, which let you recharge your prepaid account, pay your postpaid bills, recharge your DTH account and data card respectively.
Swiping to your left on the prepaid tab brings you the menu consisting of Home, My Recharges, My Credits, About, Support, Feedback and an option to sign out of your account. My Recharges, as the name suggests shows you your previous transactions. My Credits show you if you have any Freecharge credits. You can also go ahead and add credits here by paying or a Freefund code, if you have one. Rest of the options are pretty much self explanatory.
The recharging process is pretty simple and easy. Once you enter your prepaid number, the app will easily detect your operator and then you can enter the amount you want to fill up your number with. You can also check the tariff plans from your operator. After you’re done, you can hit “Recharge Mobile”, which will take you to the coupons available. There are various coupons for Books, Food, Entertainment, Electronics, Clothing and Care. You can select the coupons you want or skip them and continue.
You will be taken to the Review & Pay page, where you can either pay through Freecharge credits, FreeFund/Promo code or directly from your bank. You can pay through your Debit Card, Credit Card or Net Banking. You can also save your cards for speedy future transactions. In case your transaction fails to go through for some reason and you’ve been charged, you will be credited through Freecharge credits.
Overall, we quite like the interface and its features. The user interface is clean and sleek and the app is on par with the competition when it comes to features.
Ease of Use
The app is pretty easy to ease and there’s nothing in the app, which will give you a hard time. It’s also fluid most of the time and if you have a good internet connection then things do work swiftly but if you have slow data then the app will take some time to go through with the recharge. We suggest you to add Freecharge credits to your account, as it makes the recharge process a lot faster and convenient.
We have absolutely no qualms from the Freecharge app. The app works as it is supposed to without any hiccups at all. We always experienced a fluid performance from the app. On a speedy WiFi data connection, it works like a charm while if your have a slow data connection, you might find the app slow but that’s because of your internet speed. The coupons are also an added advantage, you should surely check them out too. All in all, we love the app, it’s reliable, fluid, speedy and gets the work done.
