The winners for the Apps for Africa competition have been decided. It was a tough competition, but the jury came to a final decision.
In Africa Central, the order of the winners is:
The winning app from SenMobile, addresses a specific need in Senegal. Its primary function is to crowd source the pricing of various types of fish in a geographic area. The idea is that this will reduce the overall prices by eliminating gouging and to stabilize regional prices. Integration with Mobile Maps/Google Maps makes it easy to see geographic pricing.
In Africa East, the order of the winners is:
Winning team, Afrosilicon, submitted an app called Funkiez which enables users to stay up to date with what’s happening, where it’s happening and why it’s happening. From a technical perspective, Funkiez is an app that notifies the user of upcoming events while allowing him/her to reserve a ticket for said event via mobile money players and even share details of the event via social networks like Facebook.
Congratulations to the top teams!
We’d like to give a big thank you to all who participated. Be on the look out for how to participate in EAA2013 which we hope to launch later in June.
