3 of SA’s freshest apps
Every year, MTN holds the App of the Year awards where the most innovative apps in the country are recognised. We selected three you may not have heard of:
Appstores: iOS and Android (free) Web: wumdrop.com This year’s overall winner WumDrop is a new player in the courier sector. Operating in Cape Town and Johannesburg, WumDrop charges all users R12 per kilometre with a minimum charge of R50. All you do is type in your pick-up and dropoff locations. The app will then calculate the cost for you. Senders and receivers can track the delivery in real time. 2
Appstores: iOS and Android Web: vulamobile.com Vula Mobile offers a platform that allows health professionals and medical specialists to communicate with one another. Before a patient is transferred, the specialist can use the app to review images, patient information and other circumstances surrounding the patient’s condition as provided by the referring healthcare official. Doctors will therefore be able to prioritise patients before they arrive at the hospital. 3
CPUT Mobile App Appstores: iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Web: cput.ac.za/mobile The Cape Town University of Technology knows what students need. Its app allows students to access their account and course information as well as course documents. This is the perfect solution for students who may not have access to computers at home. Prospective students can also use the app to track the status of their applications.
