Kolkata: Lodging and tracking complaints against misleading advertisements has become easier courtesy a mobile app launched by the Advertising Standard Council of India (ASCI), a statement said on Wednesday.

Pegged as India’s first consumer complaint mobile app, the ‘ASCIonline’ app is currently available on Android and iOS platforms.

Narendra Ambwani, ASCI chairman, said that the app will ease access for lodging complaints.

“Today, mobiles devices are more widely used compared to desktops. With growing use of smartphones, consumers want apps to put power of doing transactions in their pocket.

‘ASCIonline Mobile App’ is consumer friendly and can be freely downloaded,” Ambwani said.

“It will be very useful as one can track the status of the complaints which he or she registered on our portal with the help of the app,” he said.

The app enables consumers to lodge complaints by simply providing advertisement details and the objection to the particular ad.

Other features include checking history of previously registered complaints, tracking status of complaints, managing profile and push notifications.

There is no need to log out or log in. (IANS)

On the issue of missing emoji characters on Twitter, the micro-blogging platform has rolled out updated versions of its Twemoji designs for its Android users.

This update appears to target users using the Twitter app on Android 4.4 KitKat to Android 7.1 Nougat, tech website Emojipedia reported late on Monday.

Over one-third of the users were reported to be still using Android versions dating back to 2014 or earlier leading to the lack of new emoji support.

The emoji implementation has been done using Google-owned “EmojiCompat library” that was created in 2017 to allow apps to support new emojis even on old systems, giving the app developers a choice of not having to choose Google’s own emojis.

“At least 50 per cent of eligible Twitter users should now see this change, with the feature being enabled for more users over the course of this week,” Emojipedia quoted Bryan Haggerty, Twitter Design Lead, as saying.

Users, however, would have an option to choose between the native and Twitter emoji set. This feature was being tested on select users since March before being officially rolled out. (IANS)
