INcode is a useful app when you want to look up details of a 'code' in India. It's
free, with no ads. The Android version has just been launched, and on Windows Store, the app has received over
30,000 downloads in 51 countries with an
overall rating of 4.6.
The app includes six databases – Airports, PIN Codes, National Highways, Passport Seva Kendra, Regional Transport Office (RTO), Banks - MICR/IFSC, and STD Codes.
The app provides comprehensive details about these with an intuitive user experience. The app
completely works offline, so you don't need an active data connection. You can search within the databases as you'd prefer. For example, you could search for a city to find its PIN code or do a reverse search as well. The format or type of your search keyword wouldn't get in your way, or so we hope!
There are so many occasions you could use the app. If you're going for a road trip, search the state you are headed to for the highways passing through or the highway number you are taking to check the route. Transferring money to a bank account? Search for the MICR or IFSC of the bank branch or use the banks database for a comprehensive directory of banks.
While I can't claim any liabilities for the information served in the app, simply because I don't have any money if you sue us, all care has been taken to ensure correct and latest information. We are overhauling are banks database since more branches are opened every other day.
Credit where it's due, all these databases are available as open data under the Government of India, or its ministries. Big props to our good friend,
Sumit Dutta, for all the development support.
