Congratulations to the selected developers, we will be in contact to confirm your selection and to offer evaluation points for your Apps. Developers who haven’t made the shortlist need not despair, as Apps can continually be submitted for an opportunity to be potentially launched after the Competition deadline has passed.

Shortlisted developers are urged to work to ensure their app is polished and working well by using the “FMNA Sandbox Testing App” (http://api.forgetmenotafrica.com). The more work you have evidently put into your Apps could prove crucial when the winner is determined.

Should any developer have any queries, please don’t hesitate to contact Kipapps@fmnsoft.com or raise a question on the Facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/FMNDevelopers/)
