Hear, hear! As promised, on his 51st birthday, Bollywood celebrity Salman Khan has released a treat for his fans. Right on cue, Salman Khan released his own app today, called the Being In Touch app. Currently, the app is only available on the Google Play Store, but there s no word on whether it will roll out for iOS users.

The actor today tweeted announcing the official launch of his app. The tweet was accompanied by a video, where Salman Khan himself welcomes his fans and says, Swagat mat karo aap humara, hum aapka swagat karte hain. Swagat hai Aapka, [Don t welcome us, we welcome you]. Welcome to Being in Touch, go download the app. Although it s hard to believe that people who are actually reading this article won t know what the Swagat reference means, but it is a popular dialogue of the actor from his film Dabangg 2.

I can bet, many of you rushed to check the app, soon after reading this, but let me tell you, since the app launched just an hour ago, you may find it a little difficult to look up for the app on Google Play Store. So here is a link to the app s download page.

Before I go into talking about my first impressions of the app, let me please point out one very interesting but about the app. It s barely been an hour into the release of the app, and there are 24 reviews of the app, all of whom have rated the app with five stars. Such is Bhai s fanfare!

So, coming back to the app, of course, the app is everything Salman Khan. With close-up shots of the actor on set up page and dashboard. Naturally, that s exactly what his fans would want to see on his app. The logo and the name of the app, plays around the actor s philanthropic brand Being Human. In the first look, the app is quite neat and very pleasant to the eyes.

To get started, the app asks a user to register with their email address or password, or they could sync the app with their Facebook, Twitter or Instagram login. Once that s done, the app would again prompt you for personal details like your name, email address and mobile number, your identity will then be authenticated via a One Time Password (OTP), which will be sent on your registered mobile number. It is a nightmare for those concerned about privacy, but we bet Bhai fans won t mind sharing their personal information with Bhai.

Once the registering process is sorted, you are in. And it s basically getting all the information about Salman Khan at one place. The app has different categories listed, like Being in Touch, Khandaan, Being Human Jobs, Fan Wall and About.

In the Being in Touch category, the app essentially integrates all his social media accounts right here, with different tabs for his feeds from Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Of course, for each of these tabs, the app prompts you to follow his accounts, if you aren t already. So, whatever post he puts up on any of his social accounts, it will reflect right here on the app. In addition to that you can retweet, like or share all his posts right from this app as well. Do note, the interface for the Twitter tab on the app is slightly shoddy unless you have Google Chrome installed on your Android phone.

Moving to the Khandaan category, a bit confusingly, the section offers coupon codes for availing discounts from his Being Human stores. Currently, the app is showing discounts on the brand s merchandise and jewellery. ALSO READ: Aadhaar Payment App: Here s how it works

Then there is Being Human Jobs, which as the name suggests, lists job vacancies. However, surprisingly these job applications are not just for Being Human stores, they include offers from various other media houses as well. Most of the listings right now are of marketing and advertising companies.

Then there is the Fan Wall, which is quite interesting but creepy at the same time. When you open the category, it shows a map with multiple pin drops, and when you look closer, you realise, each of these pins are the exact location of other Salman Khan fans who have registered on the app. Your pin shows in black and everybody else s orange. I am not sure what purpose this Fan Wall serves, except if people would want to meet up and form some sort of a Salman Khan cult.

And the last category is About, which is essentially a detailed profile page of the actor, which has his Biography section that lists some of his photos and a video with a little description on how he feels he is destiny s favourite child , and how he has seen all this success because of all the love from his fans. Basically a brief note from the actor about his life.

salman-khan-app-4

Then there is a section of Hobbies, which is probably the most adorable section of the entire app. It has pictures of Salman Khan with his dogs, his paintings, him singing, riding a bicycle and a horse, and do not forget, lots and lots of pictures of his dogs.

The app also has dedicated section for the actors daily workout regime, his favourite food, and a link to all his game apps on the Google Play Store. There is also a Filmography section, which has all his movies he has done up till now listed, that are linked to IMDb with embedded links to Amazon Prime videos.

salman-khan-app-5

Talking about the technicality, the app is pretty swift. Although the social media tabs do take a while to load, with nothing more than a five second load time. Otherwise, for the Bhai fans this is nothing short of paradise, with amazing close-ups and portrait shots of the actor on each section. There are enough photos of Salman Khan on the app for people to obsess for at least a day. So, go do your share of sighs and oomphs looking at the app!
