The official Koimoi Windows Phone app, Koimoi - Bollywood News & Box Office, has recently landed up on the Windows Phone Store. The app features latest movie reviews, box office predictions and reports, celebrity photos, and Bollywood videos. Koimoi boasts of a broad coverage and analysis of box office collections and features lists of money spinners at box offices with weekend, overseas, and overall collections.

The app also lists release dates of upcoming Hindi films as well as celebrity birthdays listed by months. While the photo galleries are good and work well, the videos featured in the app are just YouTube links that open the browser on your device.

The hybrid app is a quick and dirty job and won’t win any design awards, but the user experience is quite functional and seamless. The top navigation has tabs for different sections, and each tab lists articles in a grid. The articles are well presented but the sharing is implemented via Web widgets and not the social framework of Windows Phone which is a little awkward.

Download the Koimoi app for free for Windows Phone 8 devices from the Windows Phone Store. The app doesn’t have an elegant UI, but is quite handy to check out Bollywood news and movie information. Check it out, and let us know how you like it.
