So, there’s this new app that allows targeted ads scroll on your screen when you receive calls. And someone is willing to pay you for this. What other goodies does the Wednesday News Roundup hold? Only one way to find out.
It’s the first of its kind. 99U, a consulting service and annual conference organized by Behance, will host its first Nigerian 99U Local event in Lagos, this September.
The company said that Viacom Play Plex will be available in 180 international territories including Nigeria and South Africa as from October 2015.
The investment will be in conjuction with Grow Africa Equity Partners Limited.
A new partnership between Singtel, Orange, Deutsche Telekom and Telefonica will see better interaction between the African tech scene and the Asian, European and Middle Eastern tech scene. Oh, and Latin America. Wonder what’s up with North America.
It seems Europe and America is full. PCCW, a Hong Kong-based company seems to be coming to start its own Video on Demand service. South Africa will be their lauch pad. Still unofficial though.
The app allows users get rewarded for allowing targeted ads display on their phones during incoming calls. Now, who doesn’t want to make some money, eh? Let’s hope you have lots of friends who prefer calling to texting. Or flashing.
