HYDERABAD: As India heads towards its first milestone with their space program – the Mangalyaan. has developed Smartur app, a reality app on Android and iOS mobile devices that will enable users to click a selfie with Mangalyaan. Users can also participate in a contest ‘Mangalyaan and Me’ – whereby users are invited to upload innovative selfie with Mangalyaan and be eligible to win exciting prizes.

The app allows the participants to click and upload/share pictures that can look like Mangalyaan is taking off from their hands or out of their car or any other idea that comes to their mind.

A participant would be required to download the app for free on their mobile device and take a print out of the ‘marker’ - a ‘marker’ is a unique design that helps the model (the Mangalyaan) to be placed in reality.
