MTN is challenging the developer community from around the world to create innovative apps inspired by Africa and the Middle-East.
Saying "Our vision for the soon-to-be-launched MTN app store is to have content that is relevant to the lives of our subscribers, and informed by the conditions in our communities."
Your creations can deal with any facet of life in Africa and the Middle-East – from solving some of the regions' pressing challenges, to lifestyle and entertainment, or even social networking.
However, all apps must be built for the Android operating system, and be in English.
The competition runs for six months – from July to December 2011 – and will have six monthly winners and an overall winner.
The first prize for monthly winners is a Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the second prize a Samsung Galaxy S2.
The prize for the overall winner is a trip to the Mobile World Congress 2012 !
