MTN has been recognized as the most admired African brand in Uganda and the latest news has it that MTN Uganda has partnered with “SIMFY” AFRICA to launch an application called ‘ayoba’ that will enable its Ugandan subscribers to access more affordable communication.
‘ayoba’ is an instant messaging app available now on the Play Store for Android devices and appstore iOS. The amazing feature that differentiates ‘ayoba’ from other messaging apps is that you can chat (app to SMS and SMS to app) with anyone regardless of where they have the ayoba app or not.
MTN subscribers can reply to the messages sent using ‘ayoba’ on SMS even when they don’t have the app. ‘ayoba’ allows users to securely send and receive text & voice messages, videos, images, audio, and other files with their contacts, using your mobile internet connection.
MTN subscribers will however not need data to use the service. They can use it free of charge up to 1GB of data, every month. ‘ayoba’ is described by MTN as “MadeInAfricaForTheWorld”.
