The Best Indian Shopping Apps for Android to Save Time and Money
Some people like to go to physical markets to do their shopping and others just want the goods delivered to their door. If you’re the person who just wants to get stuff easily and happen to reside in India, these great Indian shopping apps for Android are made for you. Sure, the apps lack the ability to show you physical products that you can touch before purchase, but they are very convenient.
The best thing about these great Indian shopping apps for Android is that you can go on shopping spree even during a thunderstorm. I happen to be one of those people who like to window shop digitally and usually when I need to kill time I browse electronics on Amazon. I’m pretty sure a lot of you also love to do this kind of virtual window shopping fair to compare prices for no reason at all.
In this day and age going to an actual store and getting gifts for Christmas or Diwali is kind of a daunting task. Especially, if you have a tight schedule and cannot manage to spare 5 to 6 hours just for shopping. Thankfully, with the best Indian shopping apps for Android on your side, you won’t have to drive anywhere.
Instead, you’ll be getting everything and anything delivered to you in a day. If you are a frequent online shopper, chances are you are well aware of these apps or at least their corresponding websites. So without further talk, let’s get down to business.
Note: The 5 best Indian shopping apps for Android were tested on a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge smartphone. I had to consult a few Indian colleagues to know about the actual shipping and shopping experience. I only tested the stability and reliability of the apps themselves and didn’t get to order anything from them. The apps performed well, and there were no problems faced during testing.
1. Amazon India Shopping
There is no doubt that Amazon is the biggest online marketplace in the world, so it’s no surprise that Amazon India is on top of the list. I’ll be honest, when compared with other online vendors; the prices on Amazon are usually a little higher. The difference is around a 100 to 200 Rupees but it is still there, but you’ll get undeniably reliable service and a great return policy.
While other Indian shopping apps for Android care to a certain market, Amazon goes all in and includes everything you will ever need. From electronics to cosmetics and from DSLR cameras to smartphone covers, Amazon India has it all. The only problem is the slightly higher price point that may turn off potential customers. But for all your electronic and gadget needs, Amazon India has some of the best collections available anywhere.
2. Snapdeal Online Shopping India
Snapdeal is another great engine shopping app for Android that allows you to grab great deals and prices on certain products. You’ll be able to navigate swiftly through different categories and find what you were looking for with ease. The app also says that they provide genuine and authentic products but some fake ones also passed through the cracks, so I highly recommend being vigilant while shopping online.
This app is different from Amazon because they are more brands focused and give great deals on wardrobes as well as casual electronics. I wasn’t able to find many dedicated gaming products on this app so either the usability is limited, or the product line is severely hindered. But there are a lot of great offers on display regularly on the app so if you want to purchase these inexpensive but genuine products; this is the app to get.
3. Myntra Online Shopping App
If you’re looking for an app to provide you with great deals on clothes, Myntra is one of the best ones available. There are around 230,000 products available from 1600+ brands on the app, and I’m pretty sure you’ll be satisfied with the offerings. You’ll be able to discover the latest trends in clothes, shoes, T-shirts and even sarees and kurtas.
I’m one of those people who go into a single store and come out with everything and honestly; I liked how well organized this online shopping app was. I was able to find a lot of different shirts that I would love to purchase. The app organizes everything into three distinct categories, namely men’s shopping, women’s shopping and kids shopping. This way you’ll be able to find anything and everything you want on the app with ease
4. Flipkart Online Shopping App
Flipkart is a relatively new app, but it has gained a lot of popularity. Even I have seen a couple of clever TV ads for Flipkart, and it’s no wonder that the app is doing great. The app hosts a ton of different products all from different categories. You will be able to find almost anything on this online shop.
I also like the daily deals section that gives you great prices for a day only. The app comes with an image search feature that can search a product for you just from a photo. I like the similar products feature that is extremely accessible here.
Another good feature of the app is its large product images. Sometimes you need to examine a product closely and thankfully; Flipkart has clear and big images to do just that.
5. Compare Prices, Deals & Offers
This app is the first app that you should check before going to any other online shopping app. As the name suggests, this is a simple app that allows you compare different prices of a single product. For example, if you are interested in getting a new camera, you can simply check it on the app, and it will give you a long list of sellers and their respective prices.
This allows you to quickly gauge which online shopping app has the cheapest rate for a particular product. This app itself is not selling anything but it does make your shopping experience a lot easier. The first four apps are good but this one is a must have if you aim to do most of your shopping online.
These are a few awesome Indian shopping apps for Android and I hope they will satisfy all your midnight shopping cravings.
