While browsing, all the relevant information about the selected application will be mentioned upfront for the convenience of the customer.  The store also features promotional banners featuring the hottest apps in the store, while a strong search engine enables customers to quickly locate what they are looking for.

The application store is available to customers through data enabled handsets. Customers can send a message APP to 111 (toll free) and also access the store through the portal Vodafone live! by clicking a link on the home page. Over 15% of applications are available free of charge while the majority of paid applications are priced in the range of Rs. 5 to Rs. 30.
