At most times, we tend to ignore what good is in front of us and appreciate the work our fellow citizens do. Today we’ve gathered some of the mobile applications that are developed by young developers here in Uganda. Apps designed for social, banking & finance, utilities, shopping, news & blogs, entertainment, games…. and so forth.

Some of these might be the solution to some of your problems; like why not pay your utilities with MyMTN.

So most of these developers are seen in several Hackthorns, Innovation Hubs..where they might be challenged at developing mobile apps to help their communities, and perhaps some develop them as a hobby, others for a living..to name few reasons.

Of recent Vodafone Uganda partnered with Marie Stopes Uganda together with Hostalite Ltd gathered, 14 Ugandan Universities to develop mobile application solutions expected to increase the uptake of sexual reproductive health information and services. #Hack4Ag Uganda which was held in Jinja also aimed at developing ICT innovation tools to empower small holder farmers where four out of the six application will be adopted and funded under the the Ministry of Agriculture with funding from the World Bank, according to the sources we received on our desk.

However, in the end, we’ve those that have managed to complete their apps and have them hosted..and also have those that have completed their apps but have no financial support to have them hosted. Well, if you’ve a sponsor, then good for you!

Anyway, after these apps are developed and hosted, many of us might not have the slightest idea that they exist.
