An interesting feature about Aashiqui App is that it allows users to put two profile pictures. Your postings as well as those of your friends (including status updates, photos, check-ins, and the music you’re currently listening to) are uploaded in a straightforward, reverse-chronological timeline.
Also, there is an option which lets users update their statuses in two different ways: users can either update a status the traditional way, or they can use a photo from Aashiqui’s gallery & use it as a background for their status. It offers a wide range of templates that you can add while posting a message.
The hashtag feature is also available for you to hashtag your photos and statuses which will make your content easier to find when searched by other users who share the same interests. And by clicking on hashtags you will be taken to feeds of public posts that contain the same hashtag.

Anything you update to one group is exclusive to that group. This application can also be used for holding electronic conference as well.
