In­dian Mo­bile Phone App In­no­va­tors

Southern Innovator - - YOUTH -

With mo­bile phones be­com­ing ubiq­ui­tous across the global South, the op­por­tu­nity to make money – and pos­si­ble for­tunes – by pro­vid­ing “apps” for these de­vices is now a re­al­ity.

Apps, or ap­pli­ca­tions, en­able users to do ev­ery­thing from run­ning a busi­ness to bank­ing to nav­i­gat­ing chaotic cities.

The re­cent Techsparks 2011 Ap­p4in­dia ( face­book.com/ techspark) con­test show­cased the cre­ative think­ing about apps now hap­pen­ing in In­dia.

The In­dia TV Guide, based in Ban­ga­lore, In­dia’s soft­ware hub, is a mo­bile phone ap­pli­ca­tion de­vel­oped by Jini Labs ( jini­l­abs.com) of­fer­ing pro­gramme list­ings for 150 tele­vi­sion chan­nels broad­cast in In­dia and al­low­ing view­ers to save re­minders for favourite shows and build favourites lists.
