We have recently discovered the existence of an app called Boost which apparently aims to help users to top up their prepaid account while being on the go. This idea is nothing new but that doesn’t stop the service from claiming that Boost is a smarter way to top up prepaid accounts.
Based on the description at its Google Play page, Boost aims to be an alternative to the usual physical top up coupon which has 16-digit PIN. Through the app, users are able to directly top up their prepaid account wherever they may be and Boost claimed that the app is able to deliver top up to users in just 5 seconds.
According to our understandings though, the payment for the prepaid top up can only be done through Boost Credit. In other words, users need to fill up their Boost virtual wallet with Boost Credit before they can purchase their top up. As for payments for Boost Credit, it can be done using Maybank2u as well as MasterCard and Visa cards.
Interestingly, users apparently able to win extra Boost Credit whenever they reload their prepaid account. This can be done by shaking their phone when required by the app which one of the factors that made Boost slightly different from existing prepaid top up apps out there.
Even though Boost only supports Xpax users at the moment, its Google Play page stated that the service is working to support other telcos in the future which is quite intriguing given how the service itself was created by Celcom as pointed in the Terms and Conditions at its official website.
While Boost will only be officially launched on 6 January, users are already able to be downloaded for Android devices and Xpax users will receive RM 10 as a non-transferable registration bonus. To learn more, check out the source link below.
