Today, we have number of apps which are offering on-demand cab services. Now, opening each app and comparing is a big hassle. To address this issue and simplify the process, Instago came into being. The platform acts as a meta transport aggregator, enabling Search Compare Go, thereby saving your time and money. Instago, it shows all available options from Uber, Ola and Jugnoo to public transport. It was founded by Nakul Khanna and Anmol Ahlawat in 2015, in Delhi.
How Does it Work
Instago allows users to see the price and ETA of cabs, autos, bike, taxis, and public transport all in one place. This saves the user from the hassle of juggling multiple apps in order to piece together this information.
It does not allow in-app bookings and redirects user to the landing page of Ola, Uber or other apps. This means you need to have all apps such as Ola, Uber, Meru, Mega Cab app in order enjoy this app. Moreover car pooling is not an option, which is a major drawback . Nakul says the company is working on the same and will roll out the feature soon.
Progress Till Date
Instago makes money by commission on every ride made through their app. They have over 3,000+ downloads of their product and is currently bootstrapped.
While using Instago we observed that its UX/UI is basic and response time is pretty long. Also, we encountered problem while booking rides through Instago as the app was crashing down. “We are working at our end to increase the speed and response time,” Nakul said in a statement.
The app is a great option for those who keep multiple on demand transport booking apps in their smartphones. The startup would however need to work on the response time and in-app bookings, so users can instantaneously avail the desired mode of transport.
