INcode is a useful app when you want to look up details of a national highway in India, region associated with a license plate number, or MICR code of your bank branch. It’s free, with no ads. The app completely works offline, so you don’t need an active data connection.
INcode was first released for Windows Phone, and has over 30,000 downloads in 51 countries already. Showcased as a featured app in Windows Phone Store several times, the app has garnered an overall rating of 4.6.
The app includes seven 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. 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.
The app is published by baxiabhishek & partners, a digital consultancy by Abhishek Baxi, with development support from Sumit Dutta. You can find more details about our work on www.baxiabhishek.info.
While we can’t claim any liabilities for the information served in the app, simply because we don’t have any money if you sue us, all care has been taken to ensure correct and latest information. Credit where it’s due, all these databases are available as open data under the Government of India, or its ministries. The banks listings are tricky since new branches open every day, and we are in the process of overhauling the database for the next update.
This is our first Android app, and we’ll be happy to hear your feedback, and suggestions for more features or databases to add in the next versions. Feel free to drop in a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you find the app useful, don’t forget to rate and review it on the Google Play Store.
