MobiKwik gets another refresh with new features and better 2G support

MobiKwik is one of the leading mobile wallets in India and offers a comprehensive payment experience – from paying bills and making recharges to transferring money or shopping from over 50,000 merchants.

The Windows Phone app just got updated to version, and gets a UI refresh along with being heavily optimized for 2G and patchy networks.


While the new user experience is better looking and more intuitive, it's the third refresh of MobiKwik app. I'd really hope they'd avoid having jarring changes in future updates. There's also a revamped 'Help' section to let you easily track your past issues and quickly read the FAQs to solve any query that you may have.

The latest update also brings support for Payback card owners. You can use your Payback points on MobiKwik to recharge your phones, pay bills, or shop for anything.

Along with Paytm, MobiKwik is one of the most popular mobile wallets in the country. Which one do you prefer? Let us know in the comments.

  • Getting better over the time.
  • Yeah it is.
  • Lol people still use 2G?!!
  • 70%+ in India. I know, it would be the same in many more countries.
  • Yes, sadly, most people here still depend on 2G not just because they don't want to upgrade, but because the 3G footprint is still very less penetrative in the entire nation..
  • Yep, me.
  • The review of this app is horrible :-o
  • Yes because if there is any failed transaction.. Forget about your money.. Pathetic customer support
  • Oh no, I filed a ticket.. And I got a refund too...
  • No, they have good customer care support. I always get refund within one days.
  • I gave three complaints none were refunded
  • Yup same here..
  • Paytm and freecharge is much better than mobikwik.
  • No, free charge sucks. Paytm is good but mobikwik is best
  • I use paytm and rechargeitnow. I hate freecharge's delayed recharges and their shady policies.
  • First time learnt that an app do exist other than Freecharge and Paytm. Definitely going to give a try to it.
  • Really? You never knew about that? Lumia 640 owners are getting Rs 1000 cashback using Mobikwik.
  • Amd this is the only reason I use mobikwik.. :p
  • Isn't a part of nero
  • When paytm app will support merchants option to buy from online stores and improve the UI as well... Great move from Mobikwik
  • Is there any application or website to recharge via SMS or IVRS? PayTM had the option but it no longer works. When the data ends unexpectedly, recharging through call balance on Airtel prepaid (Rs 4 per MB) burns atleast Rs 15 while recharging.
  • You can buy a ₹5 plan instead. It will give 25 mb data for 24 hours. You can start using Airtel money. It's a IVRS/SMS based service. Try *444#
  • Yup, app is now awesome but I want paytm app updated as we can buy items with bargain within app.
  • Airtel money better than all of these marketing sites.
  • But it takes a one time charge (₹15) to operate. And you can't recharge of an amount of below ₹10
  • Freecharge is better..i got immediate refund whereas paytm lacks a nice ui.
  • Mobikwik often provide some free recharge coupon which I like very much. Because these days nothing is free you know.
  • Mobikwik has false linked Mobile Operator in WP app.
    When we try to check plans for MTS (Gujarat) , it provides results of Tata Docomo.
    And while recharging just type Tata Docomo no. , it will show up as MTS and while manually selecting Tata Docomo, it wouldn't give Special recharge option.
    I don't know whether anybody here have same problem! Just try it out plz... May be this issue would be for other operators too!
  • Paytm is better
  • pay with mobikwik and get cashbacks at various stores. using bookmyshow u can get upto 40% cashbacks
  • Mobikwik app scores well over Paytm in UI, functionality..Paytm spoilt their good app in a pathetic update last year and been careless towards wp users since then... Mobikwik has good offers like 75₹ cash back for BookMyShow as mentioned above.
