ixigo has introduced ‘offline mode’ on its trains app for android users.
Now, travelers can stay updated with their live train running status, search for trains between stations, set station alarms, search for train routes and receive booking reminders, even offline.
It was a big challenge to keep the app light by compressing an additional 100MB offline train data, within the 10MB size of the app. The offline mode will provide millions of Indian train travellers the desired train information, with or without an internet connection.” [Rajnish Kumar, CTO & co-founder, ixigo]
These features have been introduced keeping in mind internet connectivity problems people face, especially during the train journey.
