BookMyShow App Updated For Windows Phone 8

While Book My Show has had a Windows Phone app for a while, it sadly did not work with Windows Phone 8. Fortunately a brand new version of the app has just been rolled out and it takes advantage of all the new WP8 features – better multitasking, wallet, speech and lock-screen integration.

The app launch/resume times are very fast and it feels even more responsive. The app’s updated description says that you can even search for movies from the homescreen using speech. For e.g.: You can just search for a movie / play / event simply pressing the windows button and saying “BookMyShow movie Special 26” without opening the app. Or “BookMyShow movies near me” to see a list of movies playing near you. I couldn’t get this to work, perhaps because of the way I say ‘Book My Show’. However, searching for movies by speech inside the app worked well.

The app can also update your wallpaper with posters of the latest movies playing around you. Finally, it integrates with the Windows Phone 8 wallet and all your ticket info and transaction details will be automatically be stored in it.

All in all a very solid update, that makes Book My Show a must have app. Along with PVR Cinemas (which also has an excellent WP 8 app) you’re completely covered when it comes to watching movies in India.
