Opportunity knocks for African mobile app developers


Mobile Entertainment Africa

Mobile payments enabler TrustPay has teamed up with the organisers of Mobile Entertainment Africa 2012 to offer five sought-after €650 access passes to African app developers to support the growth of the local mobile app developer community.

Prospective candidates enter by providing a brief motivation about their dedication to mobile software development, African app developers have a shot at attending one of the mobile marketing and ICT community’s most anticipated events which is taking place in Cape Town this week (29 August and 30 August 2012). Winners will be notified this Thursday.

TrustPay is a passionate supporter of the app developer community after having built a seamless in-app payment solution that enables app developers to monetise their work and receive payment no matter where they, or their customers, are in the world.

One of TrustPay’s founders, Sean D Conde, said the firm was especially pleased to support the people who have helped make mobile such a compelling medium. “Our access pass sponsorship is a great way for TrustPay to connect with talented African app developers who are building awesome world-leading apps with a local flavour. I hope that it contributes to the buzz that is beginning to build around the in-app payment solution TrustPay offers. It is all very well building highly creative apps but you still need to receive payment for your work. TrustPay solves an age-old app developer dilemma.”

Matthew Dawes, Founder of All Amber, added: “From our perspective, partnership agreements such as this are very well received by the mobile community. The conference itself will benefit as five of the brightest app developers become involved in the proceedings.  The app developers benefit as they are able to attend a business-focused event of the highest calibre at no cost.  Finally, TrustPay gets the opportunity to illustrate their commitment to the growth and monetisation of the developer community.”
