The official Souq.com application lets you pay using various payment methods. You can pay cash on delivery, pay online using your credit card, Visa, Master Card, Paypal or even by redeeming Neqaty loyalty points.
When you first open the application, it asks you to select a language and country. The app currently supports Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, and Egypt.
The Souq app is not a web wrapper. This is the real deal. The main page displays featured deals and popular categories. Swiping left or right brings you to the deals section and the list of all categories. If you have an account with Souq, you can also log in to track your orders, view your wishlist, and manage your addresses.
The official app also integrates the appearance of live tiles within the shopping experience. For example, if you swipe to the 'more' section, it looks like a Windows Phone home screen with small and medium tiles.
Product pages display everything you can expect from an e-commerce site. There are images, descriptions, specifications, and more importantly, the reviews. If you see something you like, you can add it to the cart or add it to the wishlist using the buttons at the bottom.
You can grab the official Souq app right now at the Windows Phone Store. Are you one of the millions of customers already using Souq? Are you glad that it's now an app for your device? Check it out and let us know what you think!
