The application, which was officially released yesterday, can be downloaded from Google Play for people using phones and tablets that use the Android operating system.

Google Play is a digital application distribution platform for Android and an online electronics store developed and maintained by Google, while Android is an operating system designed primarily for touch screen mobile devices such as Smartphones and tablet computers.

“As of now, this is purely a Rwandan application with features of what happens in Rwanda, but with a continental ambition,” added Sangwa.
