Askmonk, an astro-app to guide your future

Posted by Naveen on February 7th 2017

What: Askmonk  an astrology app which gives you answers based on a question you post & pay for.

How: Each question is a paid service, depending on what you want to know about yourself or a situation (romance, marriage, business, career, family etc.) and also seek remedies if needed. Askmonk has a crisp user interface making it easy to use, compared to other existing ones like Astrospeak etc. 
It’s an algorithmic based app, where customers can pick an astrologer from the panel of 15 astrologers (handpicked astrologers who are experienced, qualified in Vedic Astrology and have the passion for astrology) and ask a question or post a question and get a random answer from any of them. In fact the astrologer’s panel is managed by Sunil Magon, an IIT Roorkee engineer who is an astrologer himself.
Who: Started by 25 year old Vaibhav Magon, an engineer who worked in the corporate before starting this start-up in July 2016 in his hometown of Ahmadabad. The idea to start this astrology app germinated when his friend sought advice from his engineer father who was also into practising astrology for more than 25 years and saw the positive guidance his friend received.  
Terming it as “astrology on the go”, where you don’t have the hassle of booking appointments and waiting for a session or even the latest digital meeting through video calling etc. All you have to do is post a question, pay for it and get your answer/answers!


Future Plans: Askmonk now has over 10,000 customers, completed more than 2,000 paid transactions all  spread over 320 cities in India. As of now Askmonk is only an Android app, but the iOS version is still in the progress. They also plan to e funds in the coming months for further expansion to other cities and also for marketing.
