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)

Google Photos on Monday launched its “Express” back-up feature for users in India. The feature will be available to a small percentage of Google Photos users on Android.

It allows faster back up at reduced resolutions, making it easier to store pictures even with poor or infrequent Wi-Fi availability, the company wrote in a blog post.

“We learned that over a third of the people using Google Photos in India have some photos that hadn’t been backed up in over a month. We want to make sure that our app meets the unique needs of people wherever they are,” the post said.

“You will still have the option to choose from the existing back-up options: Original Quality and High Quality,” the post said.

In addition to “Express”, Google will also introduce a new “Data Cap” option for back up to give users more granular daily controls for using cellular data to back up.
