Hamro Patro has recently achieved a milestone of 10 million downloads on the Google play store (Android). As a result, the app continues to be one of the most popular and most downloaded Nepali apps.
Released in 2012, Hamro Patro is a Nepal-based app that started as a Nepali online calendar. It gained popularity gradually, and today, it is a comprehensive app with several attractive features.
Features of Hamro Patro
In the beginning, Hamro Patro was just an online Nepali calendar, as the name suggests. People could only observe Nepali dates and occasions. But now, the app includes a bunch of features that come into use almost daily in our life.
Some of the interesting and commonly used features of the Hamro Patro app are as follows:
- Nepali Forex
- Blog/ Literature
- Nepali ecards
- Vegetable rate
- Gold-silver rate
- Hamro Pay digital wallet service
- Online generated Kundali
- Compatibility checker
- Share Market Price
- News updates
- Hamro Jyotish
- Audios/ Videos and games
- Nepali Dictionary
- Nepali Keyboard
- Hamro Recharge (To recharge Nepali mobile numbers from abroad)
- Hamro Message
In-app Hamro Pay digital wallet service
In a major new integration, Hamro Patro brought its digital wallet service through an in-app feature Hamro Pay. Like other major mobile payment platforms, the service lets users make utility payments, top up their phones, pay at merchants (NepalPay QR), etc. The company has recently also added split bill, and bank-link features and promises to incorporate more such innovative and unique features to provide an efficient mobile payment alternative.
I have been using this app for 6 years now. What’s so remarkable about this app is that it is easy to use and yet has a wide array of features in it. Getting the app is not difficult either. Being an Android user, I get it from Play Store and frequent updates also keep it fresh from bugs and security issues.
My first impression of the app was astonishing. I found the front display of the app simple yet attractive. The home page includes all the features, but it doesn’t look congested. The layout is handy and satisfying.
Similarly, the app enables us to see the date and time and helps to keep ourselves updated with current affairs, trending news, foreign exchange rates, vegetable rates, and many more.
Besides, you can also create your Kundali online and look at your horoscopes. The app even has a compatibility checker to match your horoscope with other horoscopes. Also, you can prepare Nepali ecards during special occasions and send them to families and friends.
Furthermore, Hamro Patro added Hamro message, an Instant messaging, and calling feature within the app. Using this, you can make a call/send a message, sticker to Hamro message users easily.
Hamro Patro enters India
Hamro Patro has been registered in India as it seeks further expansion. The company is registered as Hamro Patro India Private Limited on July 12, 2023. As per Rudra Raj Pandey, the company chair, soon, the app will be available to users in India and get Jyotish, gifts, and telehealth services.
Hamro Patro is available in several languages
The distinct feature of Hamro Patro for me is that it is available in several languages such as Bhojpuri, Maithili, Doteli, Bajjika, Nepali, and English. Hamro Patro addressing the diverse languages of our country is highly appreciable. Similarly, the functional feature that compels me to use it daily is the Nepali keyboard, as it makes Nepali typing easy. It supports Unicode conversion, which is helpful for people who are unable to type in Nepali.
My all-time favorite feature of Hamro Patro is the audio feature. The audio feature allows me to listen to some entertaining and inspiring books and podcasts. I can find audio novels, podcasts, stories, news, songs, and many more on a single platform.
