Carry your Aadhar on your Mobile in mAadhar apps

In yet another good move by UIDAI ,Today they have launched android based apps mobile apps which enable user to carry their aadhar card digitally and share its information digitally.
You can download this apps and try from Google Play

In this apps you need to create profile using your aadhar number. For this you need to have registered mobile number on your aadhar detail. Here you can add multiple aadhar information for your family member also for quick reference. To use this apps you need to set a password first.

Lets list out option and feature for this  this apps

1) View Profile( Name ,Gender,DOB,Photo )
2) Address detail
3) Aadhar number
4 Share Profile : This is is very unique option which enables aadhar holder to share their profile information and address with service provider through QR code,Near Field communication (NFC),email. If you are going to share by email then it will contain a ZIP file which will have a data in XML format with all the relevant filed of Aadhar field

5) This apps also provide to lock bio metric option that means If you have lock the bio metric data then you cannot authenticate using your thumb and iris data.It is recommended to keep the bio metric lock  disable which will help to authenticate e-KYC as when required by various agency. Further still someone whats to keep a lock on their bio metric then this is very good to keep the bio metric detail in lock mode . With the help of this apps you can enable lock mechanism and apply lock on your bio metric detail and whenever you require to authenticate using your bio-metric detail you can unlock it temporarily for 30 min. After 30 min it will automatically get locked.

The Best part I liked in this apps is Locking mechanism of Bio-metric detail which helps to keep bio-metric detail  safe. Further there can me one more enhancement in this apps which will help to download Full PDF version of Aadhar.If  user can download Aadhar in PDF on apps and and user can share this then it will be a one more handly way to share aadhar card.
