ट्रेन में बैठ-बैठे बना दिया ऐप, सफर के दौरान ऐसे लाता है अपनों के करीब

गैजेट डेस्क: ओमित्रा (OMitra) ऐप को भीलवाड़ा के रहने वाले विकास जगीटिया ने बनाया है। यह मोबाइल ऐप रेल के सफर में एक सोशल प्लैटफॉर्म के रूप में काम करेगा। विकास ने इस मोबाइल ऐप को बनाने की वजह बताई कि एक बार अपने शहर राजस्थान के भीलवाड़ा से हैदराबाद अकेले जा रहा था, तब लगा कि ट्रेन का लंबा सफर कितना उबाऊ होता है। सोचा ऐसा मोबाइल ऐप बनाया जाए जो ट्रेन में अपनों से मिला सके, सफर को आसान बना दे। एनआईटी हैदराबाद से इंजीनियरिंग कर चुके विकास इससे पहले एक मोबाइल कंपनी में बतौर इंजीनियर काम करते थे।

 

जॉब छोड़कर किया ऐप पर फोकस :

 

विकास ने ऐप पर फोकस करने के लिए अपनी जॉब छोड़ दी। ट्रेन के स्लीपर कोच, एसी में सफर के दौरान लोगों को किन-किन समस्याओं का सामना करना पड़ता है, इसे समझने के लिए कई बार नागपुर से हैदराबाद तक ट्रेन से सफर किया। सर्वे और रेल यात्रियों से मिले सुझाव के आधार पर कई जरूरी फीचर्स को जोड़ा।
 

ऐसे कर सकते हैं डाउनलोड :

 

OMitra एंड्रॉइड ट्रेन सोशल ऐप को गूगल प्ले स्टोर से डाउनलोड कर सकते हैं। रिजर्वेशन कराने के बाद पीएनआर नंबर आ जाए तो इसे ऐप में अपडेट कर दें। जब ट्रेन स्टार्ट होगी ऐप काम करना शुरू कर देगा।
