We humans are always on a lookout for shortcuts. Technology is giving us some amazing shortcuts which we couldn’t have imagined a decade ago. RightTap is another wonderful app that not only helps sort out your life during a normal day but also during trips. That’s enough for an introduction, let’s hop into the details of the app.
RightTap App Review
RightTap has a very simple and non-complex User Interface. I don’t think you would need any step-by-step guide to operating the app. The app asks for your city as well as phone number. They immediately send an OTP to your number, which means your SIM has to be able to receive text messages. You are given a time period about half a minute or so in which you are supposed to feed the OTP and continue with the app.
There are 4 major options in the app – Add Brands, My Brands, My Zone and Offers. On the top right corner of the screen are three dots through which a shelf slides open from the right of the screen. That shelf lets you modify your personal profile, rate/share the app, deal with the notifications and get your FAQs answered.
You are supposed to add the brands first before you access any information related to them. However, I found it difficult to search for a brand directly. So an alternative to that would be searching by category. The categories are – Airlines, Auto, Bank, Consumer Durable, Courier Service, DTH, E-commerce portal, Food & Beverages, General Insurance, Handset, Health Care, Life Insurance, Real Estate, Retail, Telco, and Travel.
You are bound to fall short of brands. Let me explain myself better. For Telcos, these guys give you only 4 options – Airtel, IDEA, Reliance, and Vodafone. But there are many more carriers in the market, what about them? If your carrier is Aircel (assuming), then RightTap might not be the perfect travel buddy for you. This happens in most of the sections. Although, I did have a word with the team behind the app, and they are keenly working to get more brands and service providers onboard. So, this might not be the case in coming future.
There are many side functions that you can carry out with the app like alarm, reminders, GPS service, complain launcher, etc. I could not add any contacts, so I could not play around with any of the call-related features.
I am not quite in the right place to say anything about the app as I don’t know what actually happens after the brands are added. If you have successfully added your brands, do share with us what happens next. If the app covers all areas in our day to day lives, I’m pretty sure you can get rid of many apps and replace it with RightTap and be content with it.
Personally, I felt happy after using the app as it delivers a concept which most of us are looking to get. Going through stupid IVR options on call and writing emails to quickly get a response has already filled up our life. And, RightTap tries to offer all these tools right under a single hood and that too with needed shortcuts. I was really pleased to get passed all the IVR options while contacting a customer care (telecom brand) and get directly connected to the customer care executive.
The app doesn’t stop there. It goes beyond the concept of allowing us to get rid of IVR options via taps. For example, if my call gets disconnected due to any particular error, the app will reconnect me with the same responses as it remembers it all. Cool, right?
RightTap app is available at the Play Store and App Store (iOS) for free of cost. The app shows a size of ~5 MB in Play Store , the app surely contains a lot of data. But in this case, a lot is not enough. The team has surely dug up a lot of information in various niches, but they still need to go deeper into every niche.
If you are not much of a traveller, then you can install any food app for ordering food rather than relying on RightTap. Besides, if you are a traveller and need to go to some other city. You must keep a backup option as this app might not be able to meet all your requirements.
However, I would love to compliment the developers on one aspect. The app does not lag, neither does it shut down unexpectedly. But a lot of work has to be done on the app as well as research end. I hope they bring out new features soon and add the missing brands.
FYI, I’m already liking the concept this app works on. How about you?
