EPF-APP-FOR-MEMBERS-PENSIONER-EMPLOYER

If member would have downloaded the installation file from Desktop operating system using Internet Browser/ Fire Fox/ Safari/ Google Chrome, they need to just copy and paste .apk file either to smart phone’s memory card or local storage for manual installation. After moving file from desktop computer to mobile, you need to locate installation file using smart phone browser through specified downloaded file path. After opening file, just press install button.

This App runs well on KitKat and Jelly Bean Android OS powered mobiles. It is also tested on Tablets which is loaded with Android. The App has cool ice blue splash introduction screen and easy to navigate through initial 3 buttons (MEMBER/ PENSIONER/ EMPLOYER).

The App has flat user interface (UI) which is looking clean and it is easy to type text and number. The prompt error messages on the same screen and helping tips on each columns gives more user friendly experience. The user do not require any additional help further. It works faster even though the mobile uses internet connection with lower bandwidths through 2G. It is definitely going to add advantage since every common man can access their provident fund related matters even connected in slower internet speed.
