Samsung in partnership with Strathmore University’s iLab have unveiled 6 locally developed Android apps that will be made available on the Samsung Appstore in about a week’s time. These six apps include Find A Doc, Christian Church App, Michezo, Kitoweo, Kenya Law Reports, Strathmore Business School App and Pharmacy and Poisons Board.
Mobile apps are becoming popular by the day and this move by Samsung and Strathmore University will help local developers get exposure to both local and international markets.
Samsung Electronics East Africa chief operating officer (COO) Robert Ngeru said, “The Samsung appstore is accessed by millions of mobile phone subscribers globally seeking to download quality android applications in diverse categories such as entertainment, education, games, lifestyle, travel and productivity among others.”
He added, “Kenyan app developers on the Android platform have equal access to other global developers to showcase their solutions on the Samsung app store which is a gateway to global technology entrepreneurship.”
Both Samsung and Strathmore are committed to growing the entrepreneurial attitude in Kenya and this move sets them on the right track.
