Currently, mobile technology and specifically mobile apps is all the rage in Africa and especially Kenya. If you ask me, Kenya is setting precedence in Eastern Africa (if not the whole of Africa and the world) in mobile technology in terms of mobile apps innovation, development and use. There are various reports on research carried out that confirms all that. This may be attributed in part to the increasing bandwidth, availability and affordability of smart phones and other mobile computing devices among other factors. Instead of repeating what has been said in various online journals/blogs about why it is the best time to go mobile whether it is just automating business processes, developing apps, or even entertainment, I will list links that will most definitely have you "converted" from total belief/trust in PC's, purely desktop applications and cynicism in mobile technology, to accepting the truth: mobile is all the rage. You'll thank me later.Here we go:
