Just yesterday we reported on how strong of a market India was for Windows Phone. The OS has been the number two in the country for three consecutive quarters now, beating out BlackBerry and the iPhone. Part of that success has been the range of devices released, especially from Nokia. The other piece of the puzzle is the ability for Windows Phone to pick up major apps that consumers are looking for.
Today, two big apps have landed for Windows Phone users in that region: Union Bank of India and KBC, which is better known as ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?’ to English audiences.
U-Mobile is the Union Bank of India’s app for Windows Phone users (7.x and 8 supported). The app is chock full of features for those who wish to do their banking on the go and it should keep customers happy. U-Mobile is one of numerous banking apps to land on Windows Phone for our Indian audience, and it should allow Microsoft to continue to hold onto their lead there for market share.
Features in U-Mobile
- User friendly interface with touch screen UI support
- Balance Inquiry
- Mini Statement
- Intrabank Funds Transfer (Mobile to Mobile, Mobile to Account)
- Interbank Mobile Payment Service (IMPS)
- Ecash (Remittance of funds from mobile and withdrawal in cash at bank’s ATM)
- Bill Payment and Donations
- Offline Service Requests
Users can head to the Windows Phone Store to pick up U-Mobile by following this link (or scanning the QR code below).
Kaun Banega Crorepati, better known as KBC in India, is the game show ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?’ personalized for that region. It’s a very popular show, spanning over into Pakistan and even English markets as well.
The game evidently comes from Sony Entertainment Television Multi Screen Media and comes with only 250 questions. If you want more, you can do an in-app purchase for 1,250 more questions and buy more in 250 blocks for Rs. 55.
The game looks quite fun and goes for around 99 cents. There’s no reason not to try it if you’re a fan of the show.
You can head to the Store here to pick up the game. Windows Phone 8 only
