MobiKwik launches new app to work with slow internet

MobiKwik has announced the launch of MobiKwik Lite, a light mobile wallet app that is easy to download and works even on basic Internet connection. MobiKwik Lite is less than 1MB in size and can be downloaded within 30 seconds.

  • The app is available in Hindi and English and users can download the same by giving a missed call to 80971-80971. According to MobiKwik, the app works on EDGE connection as well, allowing users in areas with slower connections to make digital payments easily.
  • Users can sign-up with MobiKwik Lite using their mobile number. This means that even if you don’t have the official Google Play Store (like on some forked versions of Android), you can still download the app. The app is compatible with Android v2.3 (and later) and iOS. It supports receiving payment, bank transfer, P2P transfer, bill payments and recharges.
