Today, we are excited to announce that Afrinolly has seen over a million downloads within the last eleven months thanks to you. Precisely three weeks ago downloads of Afrinolly across all platforms namely Android, Blackberry, Nokia Symbian, Nokia S40 and Java crossed the One million mark.

Since emerging as the winner of the Google Android Developers Challenge, Sub-Saharan Africa in the Entertainment category in September 2011, we have seen a progressive growth rate in terms of downloads across Africa. Nigeria has the largest share of download with over 65%, Ghana, South-Africa and other African countries follow, USA, UK, Brazil and India make up majority of the rest.

Today’s announcement reflects growing customer demand for discovery, entertainment and social functionality on their favorite mobile phones. With MTN Afrinolly, MTN has shown its commitment to support the local apps community and has led the campaign to raise awareness among mobile subscribers who are still unaware of the full range of potential services they can enjoy via their mobile phones.

On Afrinolly, customers discover upcoming movies via their trailers helping them to plan on seeing such at the cinemas, they are able to follow their favorite African movie celebrities and read entertainment news/gossips from across Africa right on their mobile devices.
