Basirly Application – The Digital Gateway to Ancient Psychic Readings

Dubai – March 29, 2021 – Psychic readings have been around for ages, since the dawn of kings and queens, and have ever since had a cult following on both the global and regional scenes – with some forms even originating from the Middle East such as coffee cup readings.

Traditionally, such readings in their varied forms had always been conducted face-to-face so as to secure the personal touch and trust between the readers and their clients, with great legendary leaders known to have often relied on their personal trusted shamans for sensitive decision-making relating to war and harvest amongst others. Recently however, the advancements and advantages of technology and digitalization have had ubiquitous influences over virtually all aspects of our day-to-day lives, and psychic readings are no exception.

In this regard, many modern-day entertainment applications have tried to digitalize psychic readings and capture their essence on an online platform available to all users; however, the perceived familiarity and relatability of face-to-face readings could not be replaced by any level of practicality that technology and applications offered.

Although many psychic reading applications were constrained by the aforementioned, Basirly, developed in 2016, succeeded in achieving a breakthrough owing to its on-demand marketplace for fortune-telling and psychic readings with real professionals over varied psychic fields.

The application is one of the highest rated psychic reading platforms in the MENA and GCC regions and has been ranked as the number one top grossing entertainment application in all of its main target markets, namely the KSA, UAE, Kuwait and Qatar. Moreover, Basirly led the list of the 10 best palm reading applications available in the market according to techymarvel, an online tech blog.

Basirly has thus succeeded in rejuvenating the ancient and psychic reading art by connecting users with real certified psychics on a user-friendly and easily-accessible platform. To that end, the application provides its users with popular and demanded services such as Coffee Cup Reading, Palm Reading, Face Readings, Tarot Card Readings, Love Counselling, Horoscope Reading and others. In addition to the aforementioned, Basirly’s crown jewel has proven to be its live psychic readings and live calls with fortune tellers.

These live sessions have enabled users to benefit from the practicality of the application format, all the while retaining the perceived advantages of live “face-to-face” readings. To this day, Basirly remains an ad-free platform and one of the only applications in the GCC and MENA regions to offer such live sessions – which in turn has ensured its traction and accordingly fuelled its exceptional growth over the past few years.

As such, the Basirly platform enables users to browse through highly qualified multi-lingual service providers and view their public ratings. Once a certified real service provider is selected, users can communicate online reliably via voice and video and ultimately pay for services through secure payment gateways.

Today, the application boasts more than 1 million downloads and more than 100 thousand active users, mainly spread across the MENA and GCC regions, and is offered on both the Google Play Store for Android users and on the Apple Store for IOS users. Furthermore, the platform is offered in five languages, namely English, Arabic, Turkish, Spanish and Portuguese.

Basirly was developed back in 2016 by Messrs. Karim Charif and Fouad Itani, two seasoned entrepreneurs and experienced tech and telecom platform builders. They both perceived a real gap in the market and a golden opportunity in digitalizing the business of certified psychics.

Karim Charif, Co-Founder of Basirly, said in an interview: “Basirly really is the bridge to the new generation and the adoption of ancient forms of entertainment. A lot of people around the world are interested and so are strong believers in the ancient arts, however, accessing such services has traditionally been reserved to face-to-face meetings.

“Nowadays though, especially the younger generation, who still carries this interest in the arts, is more likely to engage in forms of psychic readings through the use of technology, and that is exactly where Basirly comes in.

“It has been great to see such strong uptake in our platform over the last years and we look forward to continue to provide our users with the best psychic reading experience as we keep expanding and improving our services to all our customers.”

To sum up, capitalizing on its renowned professionalism and accuracy, Basirly strived to meet the latent demand for relatable and reliable psychic readings by being the first application in the region to introduce live psychic readings through video and voice calls, thus embedding a personal touch and a companionship-feel into its readings. This offered users a unique experience, enabling them to select from a wide marketplace of renowned psychic readers, each with their own ratings, comments and consultation fees.
