Around YU: YU has become the first mobile brand to integrate a host of services under one name and it’s called Around YU. It ensures that the user no longer requires multiple apps for different things like shopping, ordering food, booking tickets etc.
Around YU would let you book cabs, flight and check PNR status; railway ticket booking will come soon, promises YU. This integrated service will get customised and become user-specific as it is used over time. Like HTC BlinkFeed, it is present on the left-most corner of the screen and is described by Rahul Sharma as, “new way to discover your services, to discover your life”.yu yutopia iGyaan 7
