There is an African owned technology and mobile application/web development company based in United States and Sierra Leone called Techfrica. Through its app developer side of brand called Appsfrica, they have recently launched a telecommunication app to fill the void of Africans not having their own line of mobile communication.
Supfrica is a freeware, cross-platform messaging, and Voice over IP (VoIP) service application. It allows users to send text messages and voice messages, make voice and video calls, and share images, documents, user locations, and other media. Many andriod users have downloaded, used, and rated this app. So far it has received high ratings and high volume of attraction within a few days. Thus, something worth trending.
Prior to this valuable app, the Techfrica brand has had a rather unique history. In 2015, they decided to take a leap of faith and launched their technology company and mobile app company.
Shortly afterwards, they started working on their first app to bring not only their African radio program but similar radio stations and artist music to a larger audience. Thus, audiofrica was born, which is one of the select few music apps for both Continental Africa, Caribbean, and African Diaspora to download and stream content.
In 2019, Techfrica had some mobile apps to launch, which were a ride sharing (Ridefrica/Drivefrica), video sharing (Videofrica), films/movies streaming (Filmfrica), and so on in the USA and Africa, respectively. In 2020, child educational app (abcfrica) and mobile app store (appsfrica app) were launched. They will continue to offer mobile apps and web designs as a service to clients as well as provide a shared collaborative workspace (Collabfrica) that meets the social and financial needs of the African Diaspora and other ethnicities soon.
As 2021 begins, we are living in some exciting times for African Technology, especially for mobile apps. There is now a mobile line of communication for African consumers and their families, which is Supfrica. From Africa to the African Diaspora, you and your family can send text messages and voice messages, make voice and video calls, and share images, documents, user locations, and other media. Cheers to the trendsetter!
