An Indian app maker has received a thumbs up from the Indian Consumer Commission (ICC) for its water-saving smartphone water purifiers.
The app, Snapdeal Water Purifier, lets users save water for personal and business use by streaming and streaming back their water usage.
The app was launched on the Indian market on January 2 and has already received a good response.
“The app helps consumers to save water as well as earn money through the use of their water-powered devices,” the company said in a statement on Wednesday.
“With the help of the app, we’ve raised $4,000 in the last 24 hours, and now we need your help to keep the app growing.
Please support the app with your donation.”
The app was originally launched on March 31, but the ICO, the country’s consumer protection body, issued a warning on January 1, saying the app was not suitable for children under the age of six.
“In order to protect children, the app cannot be used by children under six years of age.
We have instructed the app developer to take immediate action to remove the app from the market,” the ICO said.
In addition, the ICO urged Snapdeal to improve the quality of the product.
“We have asked the company to provide the necessary information and ensure the quality and safety of the water purifying process, including testing for bacteria and viruses,” the regulator said.
Snapdeal has not yet responded to the ICO’s notification.
The water-savvy company is in the process of launching a water-filtering app for the iPhone and Android.
The company also launched a new app, Water-Smart, which can save water to smartphones and tablets.
