TOP KENYAN MOBILE APPLICATIONS (PART 1)

As we proceed into 2013, I have put together a list of must have applications, and I hope you’ll find it interesting. With over 12 million internet users in Kenya, the importance of mobile applications cannot be over emphasized.

 NIKO HAPA

The application is a social location sharing application that allows users to use either SMS or their android application to give their location. The SMS Service is charged at 1 shilling.

NDURU APP

Nduru App is a road safety application that lets you manage incidences related to road safety. Nduru is Swahili for scream. The application lets you report emergencies, send complaints, first aid guide among others. The one feature that makes it exception is the ability to report in real time for traffic updates and the speedometer feature that allows passengers to detect the speed.

SAFARICOM APP

I must confess this is one of my favorite applications. Imagine of this, having an app that has all the Safaricom codes and that you don’t have to remember them all. This is one application that is regularly updated and one doesn’t have to struggle finding out what’s the code of the new service Safaricom has. Try it out!
