Patanjali Kimbho App Disappears From Play store
Patanjali, an Indian based mineral, and the herbal company also wanted to play a role in making India digitalized. The stepping stone for this idea was releasing an app called as Patanjali Kimbho.
The initial share of apps link was done by Acharya Balkrishna (Co-founder of Patanjali) on his official Twitter account. In which he wrote down about the app having a trial version and gave the link to download it from Play store. Trail app was released for Android as well as iOS. Eventually, the app gained huge attention resulting in 5,000 downloads. But was it the best app ever? No.
Popular French security expert under pseudonym Elliot Alderson went into the app and said that he could clearly see all third-party messages in the platform, which confirmed on how insecure the app was.
Patanjali’s spokesperson S K Tijarawala said that the removal of their app from Google Play store was because of some conspiracy of foreign companies and they have decided to re-launch the app officially on Aug 27.
Patanjali’s intention in releasing this app was to replace WhatsApp and provide all its similar features to its user. But it seems like they have failed to do so. Will the app perform better after re-launch? A question that only time can answer.
