Why Isn’t the Mobikwik App Available on the Android Market?

Please note that similar to the Java ME version of the app, this Android app too is in very early testing stages, and includes limited functionality. It does not support making payments right now. We would like you to help us in testing this app and make it better by your feedback. Once we feel that the app has enough polish and stability, we will release it on a bigger scale on the official Android market.
