Ajibola might seem like a mild mannered individual but the young man in his mid twenties is undoubtedly heading in the right direction with his brilliance and innovativeness. Emerging as the overall winner in Nokia’s create for millions promo.
The Nokia create for millions promo is one of the moves to push for the development of quality applications for their S40 mobile platform. The Nokia-sponsored competition for mobile app developers in West Africa (Create for Millions Competition) has produced 3 winners. The Vice President of Nokia West Africa, Mr. James Rutherfoord explained that the competition was part of Nokia's strategy to deliver mobile phones and services for the next billion.
Mr. Rutherfoord said “competitions of this nature would help improve the quality of locally relevant apps on Nokia's range of devices.” He said West African developers were one of the most active in participating in the global leg of the apps competition at the end of 2011.
The apps that won from West Africa include:
My cash by teXs (Ajibola Aiyedogbon);
Maths Practice by Sinelimit
Danfo by Pledge 51.
My cash by teXs (Ajibola Aiyedogbon) was voted the overall best app and will receive a prize of $5,000. Nokia is also sponsoring all 3 app developers to Barcelona Spain to attend Mobile World Congress – the largest mobile conference in the world. The move is expected to give the app developers needed international exposure. The My cash app by Ajibola Aiyedogbon is a mobile app that helps every conscious individual monitor and regulate their expenses buy input daily and weekly expenses, a sure way to really cut down excessive spending.
Already the young and talented Ajibola is currently working on more mind blowing applications which I have seen firsthand and if I must say his apps are simply exceptional. According to him he has no plans on resting anytime soon.
