first great western launches masabi’s first windows phone 7 mTicketing app
We’re delighted to announce our first Windows Phone 7 (WP7) mTicketing app for UK Rail, in conjunction with First Great Western, has hit the Marketplace. It’s free to download and boasts live train running and platform information as well as the ability to securely buy tickets straight from your phone.
Producing applications for WP7 has been a real passion-project for our designers and developers alike, and we’re really pleased with how it’s turned out.
The design follows the WP7 panoramic styling, allowing users to scroll horizontally through the various screens. The homepage tiles allow users to quickly navigate through the app – booking tickets, checking times and monitoring train progress in real time.
Our developers have been working on Windows Phone 7 for a while, even creating and submitting our ‘Oblongs!’ app earlier this year to test the process and have produced a quick and slick experience that demonstrates the power of the platform.
