Online news, information, communication, entertainment and shopping services provider, Rediff.com India Limited, today launched its realtime news app for Microsoft’s latest operating system, Windows 8.
“The realtime news app now brings India as it happens to the new generation of touch screen devices and laptops powered by Windows 8. The user interface conforms to the Metro UX style of the Windows 8 platform, enabling a seamless experience while browsing the apps for news,” Rediff chairman Ajit Balakrishnan said in a release.
With the availability of the realtime news app on Window 8, users now have a better sense of what is happening at that moment across 30,000 Indian and international publications, the Nasdaq-listed company said.
“We believe the large scale adoption of broadband on PC and mobile devices in India is imminent and we continue to focus on our vision and strategy of positioning Rediff for the anticipated explosion of growth. The development of our applications, specifically for the realtime news service, is a deliberate step in that direction,” Balakrishnan added.
