Rajasthan Royals is an Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise representing Jaipur. Started in 2008, IPL is an annual Twenty20 cricket tournament where different franchise teams participate for the title.
The official Rajasthan Royals app for Windows Phone, published by Tata Consultancy Services – the franchise’s official technology partner - got bumped to version 2 recently for the upcoming IPL season starting this month.
The app offers live scores for IPL and Champions League T20 matches, league standings, and complete schedule info. You can find team details with statistics as well as the latest news, pictures, and videos. You can also keep a tab on the team’s social media channels – Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram - from within the app.
As part of the Fan Zone, the app features a predictoRR contest for fans as well as the ability to download team’s wallpapers and set the official anthem as your phone’s ringtone. The app also provides random cricketing trivia as ‘Fun fact of the day’.
I quite liked the app’s ability to give reminders for upcoming matches and push notifications for match events. These are very useful to stay updated with the cricket without firing the app sometimes.
Download the Rajasthan Royals app for free for Windows Phone 7.x and Windows Phone 8 devices from the Windows Phone Store. If you wear the Rajasthan Royals jersey during the IPL season or follow the tournament, the Rajasthan Royals app is a great app to have. Give it a whirl, and let us know how you like it. Halla Bol!
