It doesn't even send me any notifications regarding the exam it was supposed to. I like the initiative but i dislike the implementation. Edit:- To the developer, I have indeed registered myself at the portal and have appeared in the exam. Either the application is unable to function properly or the particular exam authority hasnt utilised the platform and just falsely advertised it.

Hi, please contact the relevant examination authority and get yourself registered on their portal first, then only you will be able to receive any OTPs, messages, and updates on Sandes application. Also, ensure that you are using the same mobile number at both places. Thanks.

This one is very good and one thing I like about this app is that this app allows everyone to front their color but this one has only one drawback that we can't put status and can't connect to computer.

Nice app , animations are okay but add more features like adding custom biodata information / or about section. Add Today's status if possible. Most important Add some themes / colours. Hope after some days this app will lead internet.😃
