Apps to ease your way into a perfect Eid

Eid comes bearing happiness and the sense of a new beginning. Feeling content with completing your religious obligations alone won't make the cut– the day needs to be celebrated properly with friends and family. Guests and neighbours will show up at your place, little ones will demand their salaami, yet everyone will only remember the food and home décor for days to come. And so I reiterate, Eid brings the opportunity to start anew.

Here are some apps to stay a step ahead of everyone on Eid. What better way to help you in this modern era than with the touch of a button?


You'll want new clothes, footwear, and accessories to be the best version of yourself on this day. Dapper and gorgeous is the way to go. Why waste countless hours on the dusty roads and narrow alleys when you can pick, choose, and order from home?

Not to forget, some people target Eid as a stepping stone for a future investments. I'm talking about those who plan to buy cars, move into a new home, or start fresh at a new job. The Bikroy app has it all sorted for you. Properties and automobiles are listed with details and photos for sale; you can even chat with the seller [and buyers too] in the app.


If it is Eid, there will be food. And in all the hullabaloo, it's no surprise your stock might miss out on a few items.

Fear not, get the Chaldal app. This online grocery has fresh produce like vegetables, meat, poultry, fish and all other supermarket consumer goods just for you. The app has over 4500 products including utensils and kitchen supplies.

There's no reason to go hungry this Eid with so many food joints to choose from around the city.

I love shemai, but who says I can't have pizza and cake on Eid? Talk less, eat more, and also keep an eye out on the promotions and updated menus on the apps.


Along with happiness and food, Eid also gives us some cash in hand to repair that faulty toaster or paint the bedroom with another shade of white. offers various kinds of services ranging from electronic and home repairs to car paintjobs and furnishing and laundry, and the list goes on and on. You'll be spoiled for choice at the available services; they also work according to your desired date and time.

Seems like 'age' and 'how much salaamiI got this Eid' are inversely proportional; the older we grow, the less we receive.
