WOW-Box is a lifestyle app or digital distribution service, providing users with engaging content, both regarding up-selling internal product offers, as well as local content from established partners like daily trending news, sports results, in-built games, free music, lifestyle articles, and much more.

This draws user attention and therefore allows Telenor to communicate with its customer base directly through the device. The main feature of this app is to help you knowing about a new city. Once you are at a new place and want to know the trending restaurant there, WOW-Box is the app for you.

You will find the deal of the day, deal of the week and can also book a table in the trending restaurant you are following.

Telenor Capture

Phone hanged, software is unresponsive or a bug, you often need to put the phone on factory data reset. Similarly, sometimes due to phone storage capacity issue, you have to delete pictures as not every smartphone user has a PC/laptop to transfer these.

Telenor has brought a solution for you now. With Telenor Capture, you can upload all the pics automatically to the cloud and retrieve them anywhere anytime.

While you may think that this service is already available through Google on smartphones, the specialty of Telenor Capture is that it offers free 27 GB cloud storage to every Telenor Customer.

Self Care App

While using our phones, we keep subscribing to different paid services and then forget later. Similarly, we are usually shaky about the billing and phone usage statistics as prepaid customers do not get itemized billing.

But from the self-care app, you can know not only the subscribed Valued Added Services and Offers but also details of your phone usage. You can also subscribe and unsubscribe to different services with a click there. In other words, the remote control of services will not be in the hands of Telenor anymore, but yours.

Previously Telenor is leading digital innovation in Pakistan through many famous digital services in Pakistan. These include Voiler, Drama Station, MMS News, Socialive, Telenor Taleem, Telenor Rozgar, Telenor Health, Location Based Advertising and Telenor Shop Alert.

Telenor Easy Paisa has already broken all records of mobile payments in the country and in-fact forced all other telecom operators to offer the similar service later. Telenor Digital Festival 2016 has once again motivated youth to be a part of innovation that can bring ease to the people lives.
