Top 10 South African Apps Every Techie Must Have

A great future awaits Africa. Internationally, Africa has been acknowledged as the continent with infinite resources. Now we have the right technology to propel us even further. However, before I awaken your true pride for Africa, I should first acknowledge a country that’s making all of us proud.
