Going the Xtra mile with gifts

Xtra is in essence an app where you can send gifts digitally for various restaurants and retail stores across Dhaka to someone. It works on a person to person basis and the person availing the gift can use it across stores around Dhaka. You can also send corporate gifts with the app as well, sending bulk gifts to employees of another company on behalf of yours. 

The home screen of the app showcases all the gifts you have sent and received with the main action happening with the gift icon to the lower right of the app’s interface. Here you can select recipient, select merchant, enter gift amount in BDT amount and also leave an optional message for the receiver. Merchants are divided by name in descending order and trend. You can send mobile recharge amount as well with the app. The app currently has 43 merchants mostly comprised of restaurants, retail stores and fashion outlets. You can also select various locations in Dhaka, Chattogram and Khulna.

The app has a very clean look with an options menu which lists your notifications, profile, a counter for gifts received and sent as well as a favourite gifts option. The discover merchants option divides them up into several sub categories making it easy to pick and choose vendors from. Other than restaurants and fashion stores, there are also electronics stores, hotels and resorts to choose from.

Xtra is free to use and is available on both Android and iOS. The maroon interface gives the app a very professional look and the categorization of various merchants is simple to understand and to pick and choose from.
