For today’s App of the Day, it’s baseball, TV and customer service. We want great customer service to match whatever item we’re buying, whether that item is 99 cents or $250. It feels good knowing that our hard earn dollars are getting us a great product as well as great customer service. But what happens when things don’t work in our favor? What do you do when the service you’re paying for isn’t exactly great? What do you do, write a note to the manager and leave it in a suggestion box? Maybe, if you lived in 1995. No, today we have apps. Specifically an app called Tello. Read about it below. 

What: Tello

Made By: Joe Beninato

What It Does:With Tello and your mobile phone, you can rate the customer service you receive from any employee at any business in just seconds. You can also post your ratings online so others can read about your experiences or warnings. So the next time you’re at Target and a cashier is playing ‘Angry Birds’ instead of checking your dishwashing liquid, take to Tello and let Target know they have a problem.

Platform:Android and iPhone

How Much: Free
