Flipkart bringing official app to Windows Phone 'soon'

Flipkart (opens in new tab) is a popular retailer in India and consumers will soon be able to use an official Windows Phone app. The company has already released an eBook reader for Microsoft’s mobile platform, so it makes sense for the retailer to look at adding a fully featured Windows Phone app for shoppers.

It's not known just how long we’ll have to wait for the app, not to mention what consumers will be able to do with features included. We’ll assume for now that Flipkart will launch an official store solution, making it simple and convenient to shop on the go on any Windows Phone. We'll hopefully have more details in the near future.

  • They have been putting this for almost 2 months... Hope they release it soon... :)
  • When I tweeted then gt a reply shooting to release in april..!!!
  • Yeah, today is April 1st, remember?
  • Oh I didnt knew there isnt official flipkart app so I was using a 3rd parry one ... But it is great as well
  • Apps available now are only web wraps
  • Hmmmm
  • Agree, and I hate that.
  • Yes it was a third party. It was not even a proper app, only the menu layout. Everything else they put from m.flipkart.com directly.
  • U can also add the hands-on video link i had mailed as tip a couple of months ago...
  • Hands on video of what? The app isn't released yet.
  • Beta! ;)

  • I'm waiting for this for a long........
  • I dont live in india
  • You won't be downloading this then will you ;-)
  • Lol
  • ok, better ur not in India..
  • Good one. Because their new website is a buggy. Specially filter price in mobile section. Waiting for app
  • At last
  • yo brother
  • Mailed rebel twins for the availability of popular game daddy was a thief. Got reply by Cezary Rajkowski of Rebel Twins that the game will come soon to wp.
  • Awesome. Love that game
  • Nice :)
  • This is very old news, it had been put up on the flipkart site over 2 months back. I had notified WPCentral back then but no post was made regarding it.
  • I guess they dont listen I give many tips to them..but they havent published any of them
  • They have had this for a long long time now. They are not really dedicated to Windows Phone. They have an app for iPhone though, though iPhone's market share in India is around 2%, way behind WP's 5%. But then, who is not an Apple-licker these days, except us - the WP tragics?
  • I think WP's market share is over 10 in India.
  • Is it just me or has WPC gone a little haywire since the last couple of days? First it was repetition of the Ativ SE specs twice and now this. They have had the 'coming soon' tag for months together now.
  • They are packing their bags up and are all excited about BUILD that's happening tomorrow. So today's posts are kinda going hay wire. :)
  • Finally!! I shop sooo much on Flipkart, it's not even funny. Having an official app would be nice.
  • Nice to know, BTW Flipkart had an official app during WP7 days but the development/app was killed off due to some reasons.
  • Today I got a reply from flipkart about mid April launch
