India’s leading television channel, Colors launches a Windows Phone app

Launched in 2008, Colors is arguably the most popular general entertainment channel on Indian television with a wide spectrum of daily soaps to reality shows. The channel has now launched a fine app for Windows Phone, alongside other platforms.

The nicely designed app not only includes clips and full episodes of all their shows, but also includes photo galleries of artists and shows and news and updates about them. Once you sign in with your Google, Facebook, Twitter, or (Netwok18’s online portal) account, you can like the photos or articles and add your own comments. Or you could share the same on your social networks via the Windows Phone share feature.

The app also features polls about show characters and plot points and a useless Map view to see what others in your area are viewing. There’s a handy section to view the schedule for the entire week. You can also set reminders for your favorite shows which adds an item to the phone’s calendar.

The ColorsTV app includes an integrated dashboard which provides access to your playlist, comments, reminders, profile, and rewards. The app has a neat user experience and if you are a television addict or watch a show or two on Colors, it’s a great companion app to have on your phone. Watch the episodes you’ve missed, re-watch your favorite bits, or get some extra information about those shows.

Download the free app for Windows Phone 8 devices from the Windows Phone Store, and tell us how you like it.
