Mobile Phone Apps For Nigeria by NumberOne2(m): 7:16pm On Sep 29, 2010
I have been working on some mobile applications which is adapted to the Nigerian environment. The mode of downloading apps which is mainly internet based and a drawback was tackled by allowing users share the apps via Bluetooth, USB or Infrared. I designed applications like Abuja Mobile Map, Lagos Island Mobile Map, 1999 Amended Constitution and other free apps like Nigeria @ 50.
I realize that a lot of folks use blackberry but don't have data connections and so the internet will not be a very good marketing ground. You can view my apps at http://www.greenspek.com

The mobile game and application market in Nigeria is very small. Though globacom is trying to do something (this is not a PR for them), but they are restricted to just their subscribers and is wap based.

What I did was make my applications secure by allowing people share them, but they will not be able to use them until they pay. Also users can have a (60 second) preview of the application before purchase. I met with SMS short code companies, their prices were not encouraging at all. Thus, I had to make the payment mode to be recharge card based. Thanks to the amount of scam that requires sending recharge cards, this may have a few drawbacks but I'm optimistic.

I'm pretty excited and will like to see how much downloads are made in the next 3 - 6 months.

you have a right to complain i didnt say u dont have that right. because in every society wether Nigeria or America there are people that will try to make things better for themselves and the society and there are people that will keep shouting so u decide which one of them u want to be. even as there is no light in Naija it has not stop Nairaland from working. Seun said he was using motor battery for his laptop and candle light in the night for this website to work. if he was shouting no light and was just sitting down and not doing something positive we wouldnt have the opportunity talking here in nairaland. the point am trying to make we have talent in Nigeria who keep on complaining instead of thinking of positive things to do. Nobody is ordinary except u want to make urself ordinary. Even in America today there a lot of people that say the government is bleeped up. Once again @ number one i am very impressed with your work. keep on the work

Thanks guys.

I think complaining about a problem is good, but doing something about it is better. I'm yet to see where complaining alone solve any problems. There has to be some action.

Re: Mobile Phone Apps For Nigeria by NumberOne2(m): 2:23pm On Oct 28, 2010
Thanks guys. Most telecom companies aren't interested in stuff like this yet. They feel the app market is still young in Nigeria. I intend to proove them wrong.

Mobile is the future. More phones and tablets are sold today than desktops and laptops. However, the PC still rules.
