The mobile app scene in Nigeria is in its infancy. While there is a lot of buzz around mobile app and web development, not much is being seen. Here at MobilityNigeria, we are always exploring how to stimulate sustainable development.

As part of our move to this end, we are inviting Nigerian mobile app developers to register with MobilityNigeria and provide their free apps to be made available for free download here on our website. Registration is free.

Get Paid for your Free Apps
But here’s the best part, each developer whose apps make it through our approval process gets paid N10,000.

Yes; we are paying mobile app developers N10,000 so we can put up their free apps (no paid apps) for download on the flagship Nigerian blog (also the undisputed top technology blog in Nigeria).

Yes; I know; we are crazy!

How It Works
1. Mail us your detailed developer profile; include a recent close-up picture (our email: mobility[@]
2. Attach a copy of the apps that you want to submit for publishing on MobilityNigeria
3. Our review team will test your app/s and if approved your app/s get published on the site and you get paid
4. Note: we are not paying per app, but per developer. That means a developer who gets one app approved gets N10,000 same as another who gets four of his apps approved.

We are doing this for the following reasons:
1. To stimulate development activity in the Nigerian mobile ecosystem
2. To encourage developers who invest in churning out great apps for free for the benefit of others
3. To foster the development of the mobile app development community in Nigeria

This is our gift to the community. It’s not much, but we are sure that we can make a big difference with this ground-breaking initiative.

If you are ready to go, do mail us at mobility[@] to get started.


  1. This appears like an incomplete article;

    We are doing this for the following reasons: …”

    What reasons?

  2. Afewgoodmen,

    Thanks. Not sure what happens. It was complete when I published earlier this morning. I have added the missing parts now.

    Thanks again.

  3. @ Harry, yes, all platforms are welcome, as long as the apps can be uploaded to our site for public access/download.

    @Darmie, the address is mobility[@]

  4. Done!!! I just forwarded an android app to you please check, the file is TechLoy.apk in a shortened url to the source….. Me i really need encouragement!!

  5. Good start I must say but developers need more encouragement.
    May be you should spell out what you think the developer will benefit from playing along, from the way I see the deal its one-sided!

  6. 10k… OK… can you post your terms of contract… Will the developer be relinquishing his/her rights to his/her product for 10k…?

    Will an NDA be signed by you upfront… just so as a developer i know my idea is not going to be later executed by you… that is… if my product does not make it through your selection process

    If my app is the next angry birds… will i have passed it on for 10k…?

  7. Williams,

    Sorry my response is coming this late. It’s been a busy week.

    Here is the short version:

    The developers retains full rights to their products. You can publish them elsewhere, sign any deals with anybody else, etc.

    However, should an app be converted from free to paid by a developer, it ceases to qualify for our offer and will be taken down from this site. Actually, we expect to be notified by the developer so we can take it down. The N10,000 is not expected to be returned.

    As for NDA, we are not asking you to submit your ideas, but apps that you already have available for the public for free download anyway. In submitting same for putting up on MN, you are only adding this site as one of the public channels through which your apps can be downloaded.

    When we put up your free app for public download, your developer bio will be published along with it, which is why we asked for that info to be included.

    This programme does not hold back developers in any way. As said earlier, it’s our gift – an initiative to stimulate activity in the mobile development scene.

    We will publish a detailed terms in PDF format and attach it for download to the article above, but what I have outlined here is the whole truth of it.


  8. Well i am looking forward to publishing an app on your platform, but i am not sure if i want it to be paid or not paid yet. What sort of download numbers do you have for J2ME apps?
