I am very excited – a shiny new version of the Paytm mobile iOS & Android apps just went live. You’re invited to check out versions for iOS, Android, BlackBerry, BB10, Symbian and Java Mobile phones. Or just visit Paytm.com/mobile.
Our mobile app has been a matter of pride for us since quite some time now. A lot of blood and sweat has gone into making it come up to the promise we made to ourselves sometime back. Our goal was to offer a recharge and bill payment in the same time that it takes for you to climb up a flight of stairs. I think we are there now.
Let me walk you through what we’ve thrown in in this version.
Popular Recharge Plans
You spoke. We heard. We got working. With this version of the app, we’re bringing you all Recharge plans right within the app. We call it Popular Recharges. We tagged it Beta because plans change every other day and there is a minor chance that our data might be out by a few hours.
Just tap on Popular Recharges when you are about to decide the amount you want to recharge with and you’ll see the entire list. You can filter through this list by 3G data packs, Roaming packs, STD packs and full talk time options. All these are constantly updated on our servers and you get them fresh from the oven every time you use the app.
Faster than before
As soon as you start typing in your recharge number, the app fetches your past orders so you save time. Now you should notice significant time improvement in bringing up that dialog box.
Your Paytm Cash pending balance that is shown on the Settings page now loads under 200 milliseconds for most of you. Go ahead, try that and let us know how fast you found it to be.
Some bug fixes
We’ve fixed some minor bugs for some of you who experienced rendering issues in small screen resolutions.
View Past Orders
If you tap on the settings icon, you will now see an option to see all your past orders that you have placed with us. This comes in particularly handy when you want to just repeat something you know you’ve done before.
And now here is the best part that we saved for the last.
In celebrating the launch of this new app, we are announcing a limited time offer as a massive thank you to you all! Every one of you who recharges from any of our mobile apps starting now would receive up-to 100% cash back in Paytm Cash account!
