If you are a blackberry boy or girl then now you have even more reason to rejoice as with mail and chat and everything on the move now you can also book tickets for your favorite movies. Bookmyshow which is the leading player in this space has launched its ticket booking application for BlackBerry smartphones. Currently the application can be used on all non-touchscreen BlackBerry smartphones.
BlackBerry subscribers can download this free app by visiting http://m.in.bookmyshow.com/blackberry/ from your blackberry browsers. Alternatively the app is also available via the BlackBerry App World.
Why this is a great move by Bookmyshow?
Blackberry isn’t only restricted to business users anymore and infact a lot of college students carry the basic version of the blackberry curve in metro cities in India. This is also the multiplex visiting audience. As bookmyshow’s business is more dependant on transactions rather than page views a mobile app makes perfect sense.
Also as per Research2guidance report smartphone owners worldwide downloaded more than 3.8 billion mobile applications in the first six months of 2010, compared to 3.1 billion in all of 2009. Which shows the potential for apps in today’s times.
Bookmyshow.com recently launched Prebooking on Facebook via an application called ‘Ticket Buddy’ and this move of a blackberry app is their next step to getting closer to their consumers to drive transactions.
