Reach out to hundreds of millions of Vodafone customers through our Emerging Markets Apps Stores - The store is live in South Africa (Vodacom Apps) & Kenya (Safaricom App Store), with more markets to come soon.
Emerging markets present a different set of challenges & opportunities than the developed markets. Hundreds of devices ranging from basic feature phones to high end smart phones, low credit card penetrations and need for localized applications are just a few of them.
Just like you, we too are keen to make the best out of these opportunities. We support Android, Java, BlackBerry, iOS, & WindowsPhone platforms and accept applications across thousands of devices, low end to high end. We offer seamless charge-to-bill mechanism for your paid apps. Sophisticated mechanisms like subscriptions and In-App billing are also on their way.
We are keen to feature your locally relevant applications on our stores. Look for announcements on different contests & rewards programs of different countries in our blog.
