KapGel: Our New Favorite Istanbul App

Wouldn’t it be great to have someone take care of your errands while you spend your precious time on more important things, like figuring out the meaning of life or binge watching your favorite TV show? It certainly would. Unfortunately many of us can’t afford a full-time butler or a personal assistant; at least the modern version of one. However, we can all use KapGel – an app that delivers whatever you want to your door within an hour and all you have to do is place an order through the app and pay 4,99TL for the service.

It’s been advertised as a personal assistant app, yet many view it as a home delivery service. We tend to think that it’s something in between. The simplest way to use it is to go on the app, choose a category and then the store from which you need a product, place the order, go about your day, and wait for the doorbell to ring within an hour.

Yet, KapGel does more than just deliver your product – they have an amazing live chat service that fulfills the personal assistant aspect of the app. If you need to buy a present for someone, ask them for recommendations. If you need a certain product but don’t know where to get it, they can help you with that, too. And they do all of this kindly and quickly.

We have used KapGel to order from a restaurant that didn’t deliver, buy the 2016 Moleskine Calendar at 9pm on a Tuesday because we just had to have it at that moment, do our grocery shopping at Migros for us because we were too comfortable in our pajamas to go out into the cold weather, and buy gifts for a party because we were running late.

Now you know who to turn to next time you’re in a hurry or feeling super lazy.
