I ask this because most people who talk about
tech are always just talking about either mobile phones, mobile apps etc yet other than USSD the amount of money that has been made from mobile apps locally is pitiful to say the least.
The only meaningful contender in terms of total revenues locally has been USSD. And many apps that start as mobile apps rather than web apps then to mobile apps always end up failing or having less that 500 downloads.
You have to remember that Kenyans do not download Kenyan apps too.
Other than apps, bloggers also get tend to get confused that mobile phones are not the only technology. And that there is a different between a website and a web app. A website to a developer would be just a static site with a web app being more of an application served on the browser.
Even techweez has this disease especially by concentrating the word tech to mean “Let’s just talk about mobile apps and their specs”
Which are some of the local mobile app success stories?
