Android Apps for India (Old)

Update: Read our updated guide here.

Earlier: Till now, we have done two posts on various applications that would be of use to specifically Indians users, but never found substantially good applications. Either the application were a RSS bundle or just random.

Finally we have found applications that can be categorized worthy of at least a try and come from good/official developers, which makes them less bug-prone and workable on most of the Android smartphones.

But, still we are disappointed; there is very little effort from Indian developers to create good Android applications.

    Best application for train information It tells coach position, ticket booking, pnr status check, platform number, train delay and all minute information that you need while travelling. Very fast and accurate results. I have been using many applications as I travel a lot, but find this application flawless and precise. It even saves your searches for offline referring of train schedule.

    I like NDTV app. there are so many apps that i try but few stay with me… one such app is its a free voip app which is very successful in Europe. I read about it and now as i use it, its absolutely superb. Calls seem so superior and smooth. Compatible with iOS and Android, WiFi+3G, SuperHD sound and free calls between users… long list of features to tempt you!!!

      So true Lujayn, Freephoo has got so many cool features. its sound quality is absolutely fabulous. I really like the smoothness of calls without any disturbance. Apart from this, free calls i’m sure will make this app very popular.

    Thanks for writing about TaazzaGO. Means a lot to us that we fit into your shortlist of apps. We strive on being the hyperlocal app to goto. We have loads to do to increase density of news sources amongst other things.

    Per your quote:
    “But, still we are disappointed; there is very little effort from Indian developers to create good Android applications.”
    – if there is something that we could do to improve the standard of our app, pls let us know.
