MTN app development competition in motion

Posted by

MTN is challenging the developer community from around the world to create innovative apps inspired by Africa and the Middle-East.

Developers’ creations can deal with any facet of life in Africa and the Middle-East – from solving some of the regions’ most pressing challenges, to lifestyle and entertainment, or even social networking.

However, all apps must be built for the Android operating system, and be in English. The competition runs for six months – from July to December 2011 – and will have six monthly winners and an overall winner.

The first prize for monthly winners is a Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the second prize a Samsung Galaxy S2. The prize for the overall winner is a trip to the Mobile World Congress 2012!

  1. Now this is commendable. I am happy companies are trying to encourage Nigerians in developing apps for various platforms. Nokia, Samsung and now MTN. Quite commendable.
