MobiKwik, the mobile wallet player has announced the launch of its Application for the Windows phone platform. It is a joint effort with Microsoft and can be downloaded on all Windows smart phones. MobiKwik offers users the convenience and security to purchase goods and services on third party merchant websites, recharge prepaid and post-paid mobile, television/DTH, data cards and make bill payments for broadband/landline phones, electricity, gas and insurance.
With this launch, users who have been waiting patiently for an official and dedicated Windows Phone wallet app can breathe easy. Windows Phone is the second most widely used smart phone platform in India, according to a recent IDC survey.

The MobiKwik App for the Windows Phone platform will be available for Windows Phone 7 & Windows Phone 8. Users can park money, up to INR 50,000 into the MobiKwik wallet and make hassle free payments for multiple transactions in only one click.
According to Joseph Landes, General Manager – Developer and Platform Evangelism, Microsoft Corporation (India) Pvt. Ltd., “We are excited about the launch of the MobiKwik Wallet, which is now available on the Windows Phone Store. MobiKwik on Windows offers a fast and secure check-out experience for customers, something that is increasingly important as more customers shop and transact online.”
