“Now in its second year, these Awards reflect the new way of doing business in the connected age through mobile technology and the innovative work that South African developers are doing to embrace this mobility.”

Eric Stokes from Business Connexion who won in the Best Android Enterprise Category last year agrees. “The MTN App of the Year Awards is a great initiative and gives both experienced and aspiring developers the opportunity to get recognition for the work they are doing. There are some awesome South African apps out there and I cannot wait to see what the guys bring this year,” he says.
