Touch N Go suspends mobile app reload

A few days ago, Touch N Go had introduced its mobile app which lets you reload your physical Touch N Go card. This is a feature which many users have been waiting for. Imagine being able to top up your card at any time and at anywhere with your smartphone.

However, for those who have tried it, it turns out that the reload function isn’t as convenient as it seems. With complaints pouring in, Touch N Go has suspended this reload channel until further notice.

This has to be the stupidest way to top up your Touch N Go card ever

Posted:  March 23, 2018   By:    127 comments   

UPDATE: Touch N Go suspends their mobile reload feature. Here’s their full statement.

Reloading a Touch N Go (TNG) card has always been a pain in the butt. While the introduction of those TNG terminals in shopping malls is a nice touch, it’s still super inconvenient that you can’t just reload online or through an app.

That is, until now. We discovered recently that TNG released a new app that allows you to reload your card right from your smartphone. But, this is Touch N Go we’re talking about, so of course there’s some silly, confounding catch that makes things a whole lot more inconvenient than it should be. In fact, it’s so unnecessarily complex that it almost plays itself out like the three stages in a magic trick.

iPad 2018

After radically redesigning the iPhone with the iPhone X, Apple’s next focus would be the iPad. Since its introduction, the iPad has remained the same slab design with some slight tweaks on the bezels as seen on their current iPad Pro series.

While the tablet segment isn’t as hot as before, the iPad still remains the top seller. If you’re looking for a new fresh design, Evan Blass has just shared what appears to be the first clear look of the new iPad which now loses a key iconic feature which was there since its introduction on April 2010.
