India's top ticketing app, BookMyShow, gets a complete makeover in form and function


BookMyShow is India's largest entertainment ticketing service for booking tickets for movies, events, plays, sports, and festivals. The BookMyShow app has been on Windows Phone Store since a while, but has just been updated to version which brings a completely revamped look and feel.

While the app was always functional, but had limited offerings and a vanilla user experience with average UI. The latest update fixes old bugs and upgrades the app performance, while bringing in a neat, modern user-interface that is quite functional as well as high on visual appeal.

The improved design follows an easy step-by-step process to book tickets. The latest version also adds more categories of tickets, previously available only on the Web, which you can book through the app. The update also takes care of a small connectivity niggle that hit the app last week where most users weren't able to book tickets.


While the app offers multiple payment options like Credit/Debit Cards, Netbanking, American Express, Gift Vouchers, and others, you can also use the QuickPay feature to save your payment option and make your transactions quicker. You can also select from multiple offers and get the best possible discounts on your tickets.

Download the BookMyShow app for free for Windows Phone 8 devices from the Windows Phone Store. BookMyShow is already the largest service in its domain, and the app makes it even more convenient to book the tickets for the next show or event you are interested in. Check it out, and let us know how you like the update.

The app just opens up showing the logo and instantly shuts down... Nothing else!!

Crashes after this update.

Soumalya24 says:

Post updating, the app is not opening :x

those facing issues of crashing, the app will only work if you have location services ON.

Aashish13 says:

Just try after turning location on

Soumalya24 says:

Everytime i enable my location services ? Are you crazy or what !!!!

Arka1412 says:

Maybe the developer is crazy..

Arka1412 says:

Thanks bro...it worked

paras chugh says:

liked the old UI more...it was more metro

I agree..even the background was soo much better, this white theme just is boring..a few features are neat, but really preferred the old app look wise. :|

Agree with u bro. This white theme is sooo boring... Previous one was better look..

The new one sucks to the core. Previous one was so much better

Worked fine first time. Crashing on launch since then.
EDIT: Works fine when you keep the location on

shriyanshk says:

Try opening your Location service

Madhav1 says:

guri21 says:

Updated...its nice to see companies paying attention to WP also... The UI is now attractive and navigation through the app is smoother...

guri21 says:

OMG... How did this app pass certification???
The app crashes when location services are turned off...without any warning...or message...
And btw its amazing and smooth otherwise :)

guri21 says:

Paritosh Rai says:

I hounded them on twitter and they now have released an update which fixes the crash issue when location is turned off.
