TOP 10 APPS EVERY NIGERIAN SHOULD HAVE ON THEIR SMARTPHONES
In a country filled with life, too many activities and plans to be carried out by the average Nigerian from the age of 17 like students, graduates and the working class, there are apps that they can’t do without everyday of their lives, no matter how busy they are. In fact, these apps help to make things easier in terms of:
- Communication with family, friends and colleagues
- Being informed
- Activating leisure and helping them to relax after daily work.
All the apps are available on Android (the most used operating system). You will also find them on iOS, BlackBerry, and Windows mobile.
Individuals and companies have also used this app to rise to fame and turn into big brands by putting up their services, skills and talent, and sharing what they know best on Instagram. It’s an amazing app.
Xender is the coolest all-in-one file transfer and sharing app! Xender transfers anything you want, from documents, music, pictures, to videos and apps, in an instant with a few taps. Besides connection and transfer between Android devices, Xender also allows transfers between Android and iOS.
People who are interested in your tweets may follow you and they’ll see all the tweets you share with them. It works along with hashtags and trending hashtags. Twitter had hashtags long before Facebook later implemented the hashtag feature on their social network.
Free voice and video calls to anybody, anywhere, anytime.Okay, we know Whats-app nearly knocked Skype out of business when they released their free call feature few months ago, but nearly cannot kill a bird right? Viber, is the app that was hurt when WhatsApp released its free call feature.
Skype still remains unique, regardless the fact that WhatsApp rolled out free calls. With Skype, many Nigerians make calls to anyone in any part of the world at very cheaper rates, also call their own Skype to Skype contacts for free with video call feature being available too. It solves thousands of Nigerians’ call problems and almost everyone will agree that no similar app beats Skype.
Konga and Jumia
The apps from these two online retail giants are definitely the next icons you’ll find on every Nigerians’ smartphones.They have made shopping very easy, plus attractive discounts they give customers for shopping through their apps.
The way Nigerians visit online retailers to do shopping, same way you can now order good foods directly from your mobile devices with the Hellofood Website or the Hellofood mobile app, and the food gets delivered to you in some minutes.We have few friends already using this app and they testify that the service is amazing.
The busy ones who are always in the office, or fans watching football, or just anybody who can’t find time or where to go and eat, they do it right from their phones with Hellofood. Hellofood delivers very fast but we suggest you order on time, before hunger starts, because “a hungry man is an angry man.”
