Read news on mobile in 5 Indian languages, thanks to OneIndia
The application is useful for locals to read news and entertainment on the move, in their language. Also, NRIs would benefit from this to be updated on news about their region, almost real-time.
B.G.Mahesh, CEO of OneIndia.in said, "Just 12% of Indians are comfortable with English, the rest, which happens to be the majority, want language content. Subscribers of vernacular content are growing in tier 1 & 2 cities. The thrust is coming from tier 2 cities enabled by low cost data plans and people being on the move all the time. Applications are making the user experience of reading on mobile better and more prevalent."
The basic GPRS connections like Airtel Live, Vodafone Live, Idea Fresh, etc support the application. You can download the application from https://oneindia.newshunt.com to read Oneindia's content.
