Author : | Published: Tuesday, April 21, 2015

Students from the college of computer sciences in the University of Juba have developed new phone applications for users to help the communities.

They can be used to share peace messages, first aid tips and traffic rules.

The applications are a project of YouthMobile Initiative, which is supported by UNESCO and Zain Company, aiming to help young people who have smartphones share information.

Taban Bosco is one of the participants in YouthMobile Initiative.

“We developed six different applications. There’s application for literacy, there’s application first aid, there’s application traffic lights. There’s even application for peace messages,” Mr Bosco told Eye Radio’s Dawn Show.

“Peace messages exchange or we call it Resala Al-salam and there are also geographical locations for those who don’t know South Sudan in general.

“They can use that application for them to locate all the ten states in South Sudan.”

The users of smartphones can download the applications from Google and install them in their phones.
