IRCTC official app For Android: IRCTC Connect
IRCTC Connect is an IRCTC official app that comes with all the features that are incorporated in the IRCTC website. This IRCTC official Android app gives you the liberty to book tickets, cancel tickets, check booking history, check PNR status and much more, all within the app itself. Previously, manual methods were a big hassle, so website was introduced to simplify the booking inconveniences. IRCTC website brought a transformation and made things quite simple for railway passengers. This IRCTC Connect is again a big step, as you can access it right away on your mobile phones to book railway tickets.
This app shows your the entire list of trains available for the date of journey till your final destination. For each train you can also checkout the Route Map and the Fare Breaks, whenever required. This IRCTC official app not only has the ability to retain the details of the passengers but at the same time has the ability to display notification of the next upcoming trip. The purpose of these additional features that are added in the IRCTC official app is to provide a user-friendly experience.

The only flaw I noticed while using this app is that this offical IRCTC app does not permit you to book tickets between 8 am to 12 pm. This clearly means, you cannot use this app to book a Tatkal ticket.
All you have to do is login with your credential, and then select the date of journey along with the destination stations. The entire list of train will appear on the screen right away. Then check the availability in the desired train by choosing the type of class in which you wish to travel. If you want you can check the route of the train from the Route Map option. Then proceed to book the ticket.
You can book ticket by adding the passengers name, age, gender and seat preferences, same as you do on the website. All adding all the passengers to the list, you can enter the mobile number in the space below. Then enter the cache to proceed to the payment gateway, where it provides you all the payments options, credit card, debit card, and net banking to book your ticket.
We also have an official IRCTC BlackBerry 10 App for Blackberry mobile phones, IRCTC’s App for Windows Phone and one for Windows 8 Devices, which can be used accordingly.
Things have being changing and we are also getting closer towards technology day by day. This app will indeed simplify the railway related issues and bring comfort in the lives of passengers who train often via India Railways. Hope that, every update brings something new in this IRCTC official app. You can read out the PDF of IRCTC Connect to checkout the procedure to use this app. Do give it a try and don’t forget to drop your opinion as comments below.
