Apps in Africa

An interesting start-up is making it easier for cell phone users in Africa to use beneficial apps. While many there don’t use smartphones, and don’t necessarily have computers and internet connections – they do have cell phones. Start-up Africa’s Talking is making it easy to develop SMS apps for connecting users to each other and their needs. The company already has two successful services, SMSVoices and SMSLeopard, which have helped a doctor send messages to his distant diabetes patients, and companies survey voters about elections in Kenya.
