Get into the 2go rooms and ask the users what they want that 2go isn't offering. All the best with this, make it happen.

Hmmm ok I think I know the right answer and the next question to ask you.
Answer: By sitting down, thinking, consulting, designing, coding and ,

Now you question is very weird so my own question is: What experience do you have in programming? Am not talkin about how many years or certs. Just tell me what you can do and what language you have done it with.

First download the JRE and JDK.
Next learn from a J2ME programming ebook.
Next get a domain.
Finally, consult me.

@poster
Do you want to create the 2go like on your own or you want a team of developers to handle your project?

(burst into pigdin sporadically) Me too I be programmer.

Basically, you will ask yourself, what is 2go? It's a mobile app. Fundamentally, you need knowledge of mobile apps programming in language of your choice with chosen platforms. Secondly, its a chat application. These two foundations will solve the riddle for you. Try doing a simple chat app that works on a mobile phone and you will now begin to appreciate 2go and others like whatsapp, kik, imo and bbm.

You should know better than this. Chat apps are so easy to make (like with the Emergence of open-source, app builders and other PaaS companies). Thats the primary reason why the market is saturated becus the barriers to entry has been virtually killed off. Also, 2go's UI is so poor and reminiscent of web 1.0 which sites like Craiglist belongs to. If you are a designer, you will never use 2go out of vexation.

That's for the feeble minded programmers. If you want to build a scalable chat app like 2go, you need to build your platform from ground up, so you can have control over everything. When you depend on open source, you are planning to fail.

The market is not saturated at least in Africa. We only have 2go, whatsapp and bbm unlike other places where imo,kik and others also exist. What is missing is innovation. You need to own your platform and frameworks. You need investment in infrastructure and that is not easy to come by.

That's true. But really, aren't you tired of chat apps? I know I am. You said what is missing is "innovation". Innovation is thinking outside the box. In fact its thinking there isn't a box in the first place! Whatapps, BBm and now WeChat have taken the chat app market (alongside 2go). So why make another chat app which would just stress both yourself and the users? That's like trying to make another Social network like facebook.

My Advice is you and @op really apply innovation, think outside the box, study your environment and come up with other ideas that can be worth your time.

Your app doesn't have to be based on IM to have a chat feature. It could be a business consultation platform where the consultants can chat with their clients.

In what place could this work, Nigeria? As a rule we love shinny foreign objects so only social networks can ever work in Africa. #SpeakingFromExperience. This is just the painful truth. The web will never have upto a quater of the value it has in Developed nations. So for now, lets all develop social networks and hope our grandmas visit.

I don't agree that only social networks can work in africa. That's far from the truth. Mobile apps also have a very high success possibility.

If you build something for Nigeria, it will work in Nigeria. Nigerians have a certain way of doing things. When you do things such that it follows that way then you are good to go. Only social networks does not work in Nigeria.

I strongly suggest that you create an online spot where we can meet to discuss this better. If you want better graphics compared to 2go then your app will consume more data bytes hence it becomes expensive to use. Personally i think trying to re do 2go is childish. We should be talking about a whatsapp that is
*platform independent
*more user obedient
*more scalable and portable.
*incorporated with bulk sms service for revenue generation
* serves as online phonebook
*can also be accessed on computer
* this is too much...YES we should start from somewhere. I'm in for both: as investor and developer
