MTN challenges app developers

MTN has launched a competition for the best Android mobile applications from Africa and the Middle East.

The six-month competition will name a winner each month, with top developers standing to win a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 or a Samsung Galaxy S2 each month.

The overall winner will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to the Mobile World Congress 2012.

MTN Group Chief Commercial Officer Christian de Faria says the group, currently working on its own mobile app store, may include the winning apps in the store, reaching MTN subscribers in 21 countries.

“Our vision for the MTN App Store is to have an apps platform whose vast majority of applications is, by and large, created by the developer community. This way, we hope to offer MTN App Store subscribers unmatched user experience, with exciting and varied content that cuts across all facets of life,” he said.
