Cricket Companion – First Pakistani Mobile App on Nokia Ovi
In our recent post we had talked about the CAI (Calling All Innovators), a Nokia initiative to recognize and promote the creative excellence of Pakistani developers. This involves submitting locally relevant applications and content for use on Nokia devices by consumer.
To add to motivations of the developers we just got the news that the first ever Pakistani designed mobile application, Cricket Companion, has been uploaded on Nokia Ovi Store. The application has hit 10,000 downloads in initial 3 weeks of the launch.
It is designed by a Pakistani developer who is associated with Tricastmedia – subsidiary of Tech Access Media Solutions (TAMS). Cricket Companion is a GPRS based application which can be installed on the handset; this would enable user to view complete live coverage of all International ODI, Test and T20 Matches. This application will also display the detailed live statistics of any player in the bowling teams. The application also includes Bowling and Batting graphs and charts as well as update alerts. With this application, now you are able to enjoy the live cricket matches anywhere on your mobile phone with the similar thrilling match experience as that of television. This application is now available on Ovi Store for both Nokia S40 & S60 devices.
