There is no official Android app by IRCTC to book train tickets and get PNR status details. However, there are some unofficial apps by Indian developers for IRCTC train ticket bookings. We have picked one of the best out of them by BRS and it is called IRCTC Mobile App for Android. It serves well if you are looking to book train tickets using your mobile phone with IRCTC. Check the full features of the app below.

BRS has done a great job with IRCTC Mobile app for Android users because the app is free download and serves pretty well. There are four important features in the app for Indian train tickets booking. You can book tickets by filling out the important information related to your journey like Date, Class, Quota etc. It allows you to book tickets in Tatkal, General and Ladies quota.

There are options like live status and timetable to get more information on the trains. You can also search for trains with search options like trains from a station, to a station or via a station.

First of all there is a login screen in the app that requires you to login using IRCTC account. Now it shows your history for the month like booked tickets and all. All the main features of the app are located in one section. Overall its user interface is really clean and easy to use.

Performance –

IRCTC Mobile App by BRS is really very small in size. It will not take more than a minute to install on your device.
