The two applications in the Productivity, Tools, Local and Geo category are UniDayz and Esoko.
UniDayz is an application that helps university students to better manage and prioritize their course work, and Esoko is a market application for agricultural goods that allows users to track inventory and find the best price for their products.
There are three competition regions — West & Central Africa, East Africa and Southern Africa, the competition organiser has posted on its website.
According to the terms of the competition, after submission, the applications will then be reviewed by a judging committee for the top three apps in each region by category.
“Those who reach the final round, will be awarded Android devices and given six weeks to make their apps even better. Finally, our winners in each category will be announced September 12th and will be awarded $25,000. A combined total of $75,000 will be awarded,” it adds.
The other categories are Entertainment, Media, Games, and Social Networking and Communication.
