Nigerian mobile app, Afrinolly recently marked its 1 million app download milestone across the Android, Blackberry, Nokia Symbian, Nokia S40 and Java platforms.
Afrinolly which is owned by Lagos based app development company, Fans Connect Online, notably partnered with leading African telecommunications company, MTN to co-market the app. The partnership has proved to be a boon for the company as MTN has aggressively marketed the application across various media channels.
According to the company, “since emerging as the winner of the Google Android Developers Challenge, Sub-Saharan Africa in the Entertainment category in September 2011, we have seen a progressive growth rate in terms of downloads across Africa. Nigeria has the largest share of download with over 65%, Ghana, South-Africa and other African countries follow while USA, UK, Brazil and India make up majority of the rest.”
Speaking recently on the application, MTN’s Corporate Services Executive, Mr. Wale Goodluck said, “Afrinolly app has a great user interface. In spite of its heavy graphical content, the app is easy and fast to download, compared to other apps in its category. Its unique selling point is that it makes it easy to access local and relevant content as it relates to movies, music videos, celebrity news and social media platforms. The app also serves as a platform for promoting user-generated content such as movie reviews and ratings, thus empowering users to express their opinions about movies, music videos, or favourite celebrities.”
