Sastodeal.com, is one of the online shopping website in Nepal and have been serving its customers from wide range of categories with genuine shopping products since 2011. Now, Sastodeal team has released an official android app.
Talking with BlogorTech, Mr. Amun Thapa, Founder and CEO at Sastodeal, said about app release, “We’ve been waiting almost 5 years for the app to made public – mainly because we thought the market wasn’t ready for it. Because, mobile app is something that will only be downloaded, once users feel comfortable with a certain brand. We now felt that it was time for us to release the app.” He adds, “Sastodeal app enhances shopping experience – making it extremely easy for users to browse and shop. Also anyone using the app for the first time can navigate easily. Also, more than 70% of our traffic comes from mobile devices and I must admit that our mobile website is not up to standards. Therefore, I’d personally request everyone to download this app for better shopping experience.”

User Interface / User Experience (UI / UX)
Considering the User Interface (UI), it looks pretty user friendly but product categories on left navigation drawers looks quite busy with all those line in between. Hope it make sense and get fixed in next update. Features such as; Wide range of products and improved product search has somehow managed to advocate the user experience part.
As Mr. Amun Thapa has said, “70% of our user traffic comes from mobile devices“. Since, Sastodeal has already tapped what percent of users are from which platform. Also, considering the increasing rate of smartphone penetration in Nepal, mobile application can help to generate brand awareness, satisfying users needs and finally building trust. And, good to know that, many eCommerce platform here in Nepal are following this tradition.
