Application now available on Windows Store in India And thanks again people who gave their valuable comments. :)
As suggested by most of the people in comment to tweak the user interface. After investing a lot of time, designed a new interface with some more features. The new user interface is also uploaded as an screenshot. It is JUST A PHOTOSHOP MOCKUP and NOT the interface itself. Just wanted to make sure that this thing looks better. Well even I feel I should switch to a different colour scheme which perhaps would be opinion from many like a blue theme but as the Indian Railway website was designed around Red & White as their primary colours, I might stick to same. Feedback welcomed about the new theme and the way I could actually make it more interactive.
Also integrated a small advertisement which I felt was indeed necessary as the application relies on a custom made web service.
