Yahoo! India, the premier digital media company, today announced the launch of the first-ever full-fledged cricket app for Windows Phone users in India (Windows PhoneÂ App). The app, available for free on the Windows Marketplace offers a slew of features and user-friendly interaction for the user to follow live matches, and also keep a tab on the recent and upcoming ones.
The app is the first to offer a complete match experience in a variety of ways â€“with live scores, detailed ball-by-ball commentary which can be filtered by wickets, 4s and 6s; an interactive score card which allows the user to browse through the batting line up, fall of wickets and a complete chronology of how a match progressed.
With this new app from Yahoo! Cricket, Windows Phone users can now catch all international matches and the IPL series â€“ live, on-the-go. On a non-match day, the app will connect the user to specially created photo-galleries, latest news articles on the game, player and team profiles, as well as results of completed matches, and schedules of upcoming ones.
Developed at the R&D centre in Bangalore, this is the third cricket app released by Yahoo!. Following on the success of the earlier apps built for iPhone and Android (the recent Android app has seen 11000 down loads within 10 days of launch) â€“ the new Windows Phone app has earned a 5 star rating, and rave reviews from users.
