Technology has changed the way we do various tasks and chores these days. An essential change has been in the way we pay our utility bills or book tickets for travel. As a teenager, I remember, my Dad took me to Electricity Bill payment centres just so I know how the process works. Today, I need not even step out of my house, I just need to download an app and everything gets taken of. Reload is one such app that helps you pay utility bills, recharge your mobile and even book a bus ticket. I recently downloaded it and found it packed with some great features:-
