About AppsForBharat

We are on a mission to assist a billion Indians in their spiritual and devotional journeys - and guide them on the path towards feeling happy, peaceful, and content. We are developing a suite of mobile and web apps that will address the spiritual and devotional needs of our users. 

Our first app (currently in stealth) was launched 8 months ago — this app is at the intersection of spirituality/devotion and gaming and with that, we are moving a large offline behavior online. It is already at a million installs with 4.9 ⭐ on Google Play Store. The user-love that we have been getting is overwhelming & inspiring; and with our growth rate, we will be serving tens of millions of users in a few months from now.

AppsForBharat was founded in November 2020 by Prashant Sachan, a second-time entrepreneur who previously founded & scaled Trell. We are a multi-disciplinary team that comes with a proven track record of building & scaling products. We are alumni of IITs and have previously worked at Microsoft, Samsung, and high-growth startups.
