Today’s life is fast. In a fast world, it is most convenient to be able to do things, like recharging various day-to-day accounts, online rather than taking time out, going physically to a place and paying a bill.
While most of us are busy with work, family and friends, it is most of the time convenient to be able to pay our bills, shop, recharge our prepaid mobile account and various other day-to-day accounts by simply using our smartphones. With the advent of internet and with tremendous growth in technological innovation, a great many aspects of life have become online. For example, online banking give us the freedom to access our bank accounts from around the world, similarly money transfer applications, designed to be used on smartphones, provide the platform to send money across the globe with a mere touch of the screen. Paying our bills and recharging our other accounts, like paying TV bill, have all become easy. All this saves time.
Time is what our generation doesn’t have. We are almost always busy in one thing or the other, and in the process lose various deadline for compulsory payments. It is easier to make an online payment than physically paying our bills. A simple example of this is online grocery shopping. While it may be difficult for most to actually go to the store and do grocery shopping, it is a lot easier to sit at home working on your laptop, sipping your favorite coffee and doing your grocery shopping. The delivery system makes everything available at our door steps.
Most of us use smartphones for various reasons; be it for social networking, for internet searches or for downloading music. Technological innovation combined with a need to do things quicker, along with lack of time, have made recharging through mobile apps the new trend in our society. Trend not because it is fashionable to be using ‘smartphone’ to connect to the world, but because it is on-the-go, easy and very convenient. A person travelling in a bus can actually use his/her smartphone to pay its gas bills, or a person walking in the park can actually recharge its accounts. All this saves time, energy and makes life a lot easier.
Recharging through mobile apps is the new phenomenon in today’s world. Smartphones have brought the internet to all our pockets, and internet has brought the whole world information to us. It is now no need to go to the bank or money transfer business to transfer money, an app can do that and it is highly secure. We do not, now, need to pay our bills by going to an office, this can be done with a mere push of a button.
