This might be the biggest coup for Microsoft in India. IRCTC, the notorious Indian Railways train ticket booking website known for its crashes and slowness under usual heavy Indian loads has received an exclusive app for the Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 platforms, developed in partnership with Microsoft. This app will naturally let you book tickets, make PNR enquiries, check booking and cancellation histories and more. But the most important catch here is that the app will not be able to book tickets between 08:00 to 12:00 or 23:30 to 00:30 hrs of any day. This is presumably to reduce the expected additional load from mobile devices in the peak booking times, due to this app. You can download the app for Windows 8 here (link now LIVE) and Windows Phone 8 here.
With the quick advancement of technology, its no wonder that you can now purchase tickets of cricket matches directly from you mobile phone. But Vodafone has come forward to implement this technology at a right time. DLF IPL season 3 craziness has already started and Vodafone have come forward to let its customers book their IPL tickets without any hassles directly from their mobile phone.
