IRCTC app for train ticket booking announced for BlackBerry 10 devices

Available now on the BlackBerry World is the IRCTC ticketing application which allows BlackBerry users to ensure that their train tickets are booked without breaking a sweat, right from the comfort of their smartphones. It’s only meant for BB 10 devices at the moment, and can be downloaded free of cost, of course.

Describing it as an ‘easy and streamlined train booking service,’ Annie Mathew, who’s the director of the business development and alliance over at BlackBerry India has asserted that the company is ‘excited’ to bring the IRCTC app to BB World. ‘Increasing smartphone perpetration and the increasing dependence on mobile applications,’ is what has propelled the Indian body to release this product, according to her.


Apart from booking tickets, the application can be used for other important tasks as well, thus enhancing your traveling experience further. For instance, if you’ve booked a wait-listed ticket, your reservation status will be accessible from right inside the application, whereas the schedules and routes of trains will also be available.

And that’s not all, using the IRCTC app on your BlackBerry devices you can check the availability of tickets for a particular train or journey whenever you wish to. Other traits that form part of its offerings include the ability to cancel tickets, view stuff like booking history, recent history, favorites and the facility to add passengers as contacts.

Like we said, the IRCTC app is live now on the BlackBerry World storefront as a free download. The app is already available through the Windows Phone Store since late last year.
