Bookmyshow.com launches Windows Mobile App
The Windows App can be downloaded free of cost from the Windows Market Place, the App Store. With a download size of less than 1 MB, it is compatible with Windows Phone 7.5 or higher versions. After downloading the App, one needs to tap on the Bookmyshow icon. The menu list gives one an option of movies, art & theatre, sports & events. Upon selection of the option, one can browse through movie options, show timings, theatre and seating categories. This application supports multiple secure payment options. One can transact precisely the way they want to with either Credit/Debit cards, Netbanking, cash cards or BookMyShow gift vouchers. Post the payment; the user receives an SMS confirming the booking details.
Speaking on the launch of the app, Ashish Hemrajani, Founder and CEO of Bookmyshow.com said, "After Facebook, Blackberry & Android applications, we had commenced designing the Windows phone app. Our planning started right from the time we heard the news of the phones; hence, we were ready with our app as soon as Windows phone is being made available in the Indian market. It took us about 2 months to design and develop the app and about a week or so for market place approval. The app is very smooth & easy to operate. Convenience has never been this convenient."
Downloading the app is a one- time process and the user will be prompted whenever there is an update available during startup of the app. The App is a native application developed in C#.NET/Silverlight. It takes full advantage of the metro user interface. It is also designed specifically for Windows Phone since the user interface is very different than other mobile platforms.
