Apple iOS device users are still getting used to the new iOS 7 software update. Meanwhile, developers are working hard to make their apps compatible and matching to the user interface of iOS 7. Luckily, select Indian developers have quickly tried to push an update for their apps on the iOS platform.
This time we are covering only free apps that are now available in the Apple App Store for iOS 7 users. Some of these apps may have bugs since the update was pushed very fast. While developers work at fixing them, enjoy these free apps.
Book your flight tickets for domestic or international travel from the Cleartrip app, which also supports Apple’s Passbook feature. That means you can show Cleartrip tickets in Passbook without having to worry about losing your ticket. Supporting several international currencies, the Cleartrip app has been redesigned to appear and function like one of the native iOS 7 apps.
Users can access all their booked trips and choose to pay via credit card, debit card or netbanking. We hope that Cleartrip soon adds hotel booking and hopefully, train booking support as well.
Indians love food and there is nothing better than an app that gives you all the details about a restaurant close to you with recommendations of recipes and even reviews. The Zomato app is an extension of its online presence for mobile phone users who love to grab a bite whenever they can.
Zomato allows the user to register for creating a profile and for rating, recommending and writing reviews on the restaurants visited. The app has a clean and neat user interface with ample information right from approximate cost of the meal to directions for reaching the restaurant.
Love shopping? Try out the popular Indiatimes Shopping portal’s dedicated shopping app that has been optimized for the iOS 7 software update. Users can browse through a variety of categories ranging from mobile phones to games. The app also shows the deals of the day, saving users some bucks. It integrates QR codes and ISBN scanning to check if the relevant item is available.
Users can also enjoy easy payment options such as cash on delivery, debit card, credit card and net banking. The app also allows users to choose interest free EMI for select items.
Times of India
Catch up with the latest local and global news from the Times of India app meant for iOS 7. The breaking news alert option pushes important news to the homescreen as flash. Over 45 different Indian cities and their editions are covered in this app with a variety of broad news categories. The app also offers live cricket scores for on-going cricket matches and videos related to different sections.
The app allows reading news offline and also lets the user engage with other users by posting comments, adding favorites and sharing them with others via email, Facebook and Twitter.
One of India’s rapidly popular classifieds is now available on the iOS platform as well. Though it has a couple of bugs, the OLX app is perfect for users to sell and buy a variety of items across the country.
Users can post classified ads, reply to listings and of course, search for items. Users can view the item photos in full screen mode unless the size is small and they can also check the description.
