Back in April, Google announced the Android Developer Challenge in Sub-Saharan Africa, a competition to encourage the development of exciting, high quality applications that can delight mobile users in Africa and around the world. Developers in Sub-Saharan Africa submitted hundreds of innovative and interesting applications across three broad categories: apps related to entertainment, media and games; apps related to social networking and communication; and apps related to productivity, tools, and local and geo services. In July, we announced the top 29 applications, provided them new phones, mentoring from Googlers and six weeks to improve their applications. From those 29, we have chosen three.
Judges from inside and outside of Google had a difficult time selecting the finalists for each category, and they had ever greater difficulty choosing the very best apps among those finalists. However, after many hours of judging and review, they were proud to announce our winners.
