New app to vote, share and ex­press

- GARIMA NAG­PAL

With the an­droid mar­ket flooded with thou­sands of apps, the fa­mous on­line polling web­site eChu­nav.com re­cently launched its new app by the same name in the cap­i­tal. This first- ofits- kind app was launched in a bid to pro­vide a plat­form to young peo­ple who can share their be­liefs and opin­ions with a sim­ple touch on their mo­bile de­vices. Apart from pro­vid­ing a plat­form to voice an opin­ion this app also al­lows con­sumers to vote on top­ics like pol­i­tics, en­ter­tain­ment, ed­u­ca­tion, health and var­i­ous on­line sur­veys. eChu­nav. com is the brain­child of Bharat Kan­odia of Veris­trat Inc. which is head­quar­tered at San Francisco, USA.

Talk­ing about the new app prod­uct man­ager Malini Das shares, “As we are new in the mar­ket, we have around 500 to 2,000 app users as of now. But we are plan­ning to in­crease the traf­fic through invit­ing celebri­ties and youth icons like Ki­ran Bedi and Anu­pam Kher to en­dorse the app. We are hop­ing to get con­fir­ma­tions from th­ese stars.”

The company be­lieves that in to­day’s era a large num­ber of peo­ple are smart­phone users, thus ini­tially they are tar­get­ing the an­droid mar­ket. For now the eChu­nav app is avail­able for free at an­droid play store but it will soon be avail­able for iOS and Win­dows users as well. “The app al­ready has sec­tions on pol­i­tics, econ­omy etc. But we are plan­ning to add sec­tions on en­ter­tain­ment, games and sports es­pe­cially for the youth,” adds Malini.
