IRCTC (Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation) has released its official android app naming it as IRCTC Connect. And which is a possible way of connecting to IRCTC and booking tickets.
As we know, IRCTC has already released its Windows 8 and Windows 8 apps prior to the Blackberry 10 app which is released in August 2014.
The IRCTC Connect app offers users a one-step login feature, the ability to search and book train tickets, view and cancel tickets and upcoming journey alerts.
How ever in order to decrease the load on servers, the use of this app is barred from 8 Am to 12 Pm the Tatkal period and from 11.30 Pm to 12.30 Am the whole service including the IRCTC website is closed for maintenance.
The New Booking screen allows users to select the ‘From’ and ‘To’ stations, journey date and quota, following which the app lists all trains. Users can then book tickets by entering passenger information and making the payment.
This app can be downloaded from Google Play Store.
