Like all apps, the firm aims to reach to a huge userbase in the country, especially with the growing Internet adoption. The firm says the app will help shoppers easily find and conveniently enjoy an asortment of products from sellers to list products and buyers to select from a wide variety of products at a glance.
Strategy Analytics executive director Neil Mawston told the The New Daily, “Android is on the verge of turning smartphone platforms into a one-horse race.”
