What is Fillr?
Fillr is next generation autofill for mobile. With Fillr, there is no more annoying pinching and zooming on hard to read and even harder to fill out mobile forms. The Fillr app standardises any form you get to on your mobile into a format you can easily read and fill at the tap of a button. Fillr is the fastest and most accurate way to fill forms on your mobile.
Why should I use Fillr?
Transacting on mobile is slow, tedious and error prone. Small screens with tiny keyboards lead to errors and time wasted. Fillr standardises mobile forms into a format you can easily read and fill at the tap of a button. You have multiple addresses, emails and credit cards, so Fillr allows you to choose the right info at the right time to fill forms with accuracy. Fillr takes the hassle out of transacting on your mobile.
How fast is Fillr?
Fillr is fast and accurate. On average, Fillr is over 500% faster than typing and nearly 200% faster and more accurate than competing products. If we look at a shopping site using Woo Commerce with Stripe for its payments it would take you 1 minute 58 seconds to fill it by typing, 56 seconds using Safari Autofill and only 13 seconds using Fillr.
Is Fillr like Chrome Autofill or Safari Autofill on mobile?
Fillr is much more advanced than other basic autofill products, and that’s why we call Fillr next generation autofill for mobile. Here’s why…
- Fill forms fast: Manual input is slow and tedious, while basic autofill is frustrating and error ridden, requiring you to make constant corrections. Fillr is over 500% faster than manual input and nearly 200% faster and more accurate than competing products.
- Choose what you want: You have multiple addresses, emails and credit cards. Fillr allows you to choose the right info at the right time to fill forms with accuracy.
- Easy to understand mobile forms: Mobile forms come in all shapes and sizes, requiring pinching and zooming and multi-pages, making them really hard to read. Fillr standardises mobile forms into the same easy to read format so you understand what’s going on.
- Your information in one place: When filling out forms, your info can be hard to remember or inaccessible. Your details are stored out of the cloud, securely within your Fillr app, ready to use.
- Keep track of the forms you fill: You have a ‘browser history’ of the websites you visit… so why don’t you have a ‘data shared history’. As you conduct more and more online transactions, it's becoming virtually impossible to know who has your data. With Fillr, every time you fill a form, a record is kept in your Fillr app.
