Initial Reviews of RE App
Some customers have found issues with this new Royal Enfield App. One star review by Ajay Sharma states – “A lot is wrong with this app. The development of the app is quite poor. It is confused in itself and the coding is misplaced. If you have decided to come up with an app, you have to ensure ease and user friendliness which is completely missing. The app misses to fulfill the basic purpose of service booking and purchase booking as it fails to provide the essentials required by a customer while doing either. Please look into it and get it fixed. Don’t let this app be a bloat on the legend RE.”
To this, RE has replied, “Hi Ajay, thank you for sharing your experience with the Royal Enfield App. At the moment, the app has been launched with an initial set of features. However, we assure you we plan to keep adding new features over time.”
