Global Android Developer Camp Kampala Ideas

GTUG Kampala is participating in the Global Android Developer Camp this weekend with close to 70 participants and 7 ideas being worked on.

The ideas and projects being worked on are:


I-travel is a mobile application running on an android platform. The importance of this mobile application is to assist an individual in booking  Flights,  hotel accommodation or even  bus tickets. The mode of payment is through PayPal or Mobile money.

Viola Bazanye, Aggrey Muhebwa, Mugume Davis Arthur, Moses Kalema, Isaac Omiati, Emmanuel Opio, Ronald Muvunyi, Raymond Zziwa, Victor Olweny

MiGwa bridges the gap between house buyers and sellers for rental or commercial purchase by acting as a catalogue for houses in Uganda by user preferred category.

We are a team of 7, including Muheirwe Julian, Kooma Benjamin, Kasagga Ronald,  Mpirirwe Byangwa Stephen.

Droidplex is the answer to all those whose teeth grind at thought of having to traverse Kampala to the cinema…only to realize that nothing of interest is being shown, to the poetic lover who woes in the loss of the knowledge “where for art thou play!!”.
And to many of us…who just want to know when a cool movie is coming out, and maybe get free seats.

Droidplex is an android app targeting all users with an affinity for the wide screen ( or high rise wooden platform ) and a grudge for unnecessary movement.

Hail ol’ couch potatoes!! Your lazy bone meister is here!
