The My O2 App for Android has been a long time in the making. The iOS version of this has been available for some time now so when news arrived last week that the App had become available it was met with a response of “about time” by many! With the long wait big things were expected so after using it for the last few days here’s what we think.
The App is set out in the following manner
- A “My Account” Tab which gives you an over view of your accounts with O2 with the possibility to add or remove accounts as necessary
- A “My O2” Tab which gives you a menu choice of “Remaining Units”, “Current Bill”, “Pay Bill” & “Extra Services” each which expands to give you more detailed information or options once clicked.
- A “Support” Tab which has links to the different places on the Web that O2 provide online support. This includes links to the O2 forum, Facebook and Boards.ie, but oddly omits their Twitter presence. The other links open a Browser within the App. This will be useful for some people but loose the functions that are available with a normal browser and really it’s only good for brief viewings.
- A “More” Tab which opens up into “Account Settings” but then amazingly, the only option available after that is to toggle whether you will be prompted for a password when making purchases. There is no other details other than that so one can only assume this is when you are purchasing Apps or Music from O2.
