MagTapp web browser sees surge after ban on Chinese apps

Friday, 10 July 2020 | Staff Reporter | Bhopal

With Indian Government's recent banning of 59 Chinese apps, there has been a huge demand in country made apps. Tapping into that sentiment, some youth have developed an indigenous mobile application cum web browser to give people a substitute of the Chinese UC browser, U dictionary and WPS reader, all in one.

MagTapp is a visual web browser with an inbuilt visual document reader, visual dictionary, and a translation feature. Anyone who faces difficulty while reading English content on their phone due to difficult words just needs to ‘tap’ on the word (long press on the word) and the visual meaning of that word appears instantly.

The web browser is developed by a team of Satyapal Chandra, Rohan Singh, Abhishek Singh, Sagar Malhotra and Ashish Virkar. This app is proving to be far better than Chinese apps (UC Browser) of the same category. The biggest feature of this app is its ‘Visual Dictionary’. This dictionary helps people in finding the meaning of any word from any language. The meaning is not only written, heard but can be seen through images as well.

The founder of the app claims that due to the rise in Boycott China trend, the app has been downloaded more than 10 lakh times within a few months of launching on Google Play Store and currently has a rating of 4.8 to 4.9 with more than 1 million active users., 'MagTapp' saw a huge surge in downloading. Satyapal Chandra, founder and CEO of 'MagTapp' says that the app is completely 'Made in India’. He also says that it is the first of its kind experiment in the entire world.

MagTapp is a unique app with a visual browser as well as visual document reader, visual dictionary, translation and e-learning features. This app has been specially designed to eliminate the language barrier. As best of the information on Internet is in English, this app can translate any word, sentence or entire paragraph into 12 native languages of the country including Hindi and 30 international languages.
