Best HUAWEI AppGallery Category
The Best HUAWEI AppGallery Category, included in the MTN Business App of the Year Awards, is a dedicated category reserved for apps that are published on AppGallery. The category recognises and honours app developers who have integrated their apps into the Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) ecosystem, using one or more of HUAWEI’s HMS Core integration kits. These kits support app developers during the design and development of their apps, by providing frameworks and tools that bring added functionality and deliver a great user experience to more than 9.1 million HUAWEI device users in South Africa. If you have an app and want to have it published on AppGallery, e-mail the team on: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
In the AppGallery Category of the 2022 MTN Business App of the Year Awards, three outstanding apps stood out for their innovation, value and social relevance. HOMii, a cutting-edge residential facility app that allows individuals to book their ideal urban living space and immerse themselves in the vibrant city lifestyle. KOER the world's first and largest Afrikaans dating app. And Angula, an educational app that empowers users to learn African languages using the authentic voices of native speakers.
By integrating their app with HMS, these app developers have the opportunity to reach more device users in HUAWEI’s massive user base, as well as receive monetisation opportunities with above industry-standard advertising revenue. In addition, they have access to a diverse range of promotional channels.
