JioRail App Launched

Reliance Jio has partnered with IRCTC, and launched a new JioRail app for booking tickets online. IRCTC manages and run the website, which is India’s largest ticketing platform and is available via desktop, Android and iOS platforms.

Now, JioPhone would be the next big platform where IRCTC’s online train booking facility would be available.

In a statement, Jio said, “Train ticket booking has been made quite simple on the JioRail app. With this unique service, India’s consumers can avoid standing in long queues or pay agent fees to book tickets and instead enjoy an enhanced digital life experience”.

JioRail App On KaiOS Platform

The app: JioRail will essentially work on KaiOS, which is the new mobile operating system which powers JioPhones all over India.

Hence, IRCTC had to develop a special app which can work on KaiOS, because their existing mobile app was designed only for Android, iOS and Windows OS.

KaiOS also powers Nokia 8110 4G, and it is being speculated that the JioRail app should work on this mobile phone as well.

KaiOS is a Google-funded project, and Jio has made sure that popular apps such as Whatsapp, Google Maps, Facebook etc accessible for KaiOS users.

KaiOS has already beaten iOS in India, and the sale of KaiOS powered JioPhones is growing at an astonishing pace right now.

It is estimated that more than 40 million people in India are using KaiOS powered JioPhones right now, and IRCTC’s decision to launch a separate app for JioPhone users makes perfect sense as well.
