1. Sit or Squat

The app is used to help you locate a clean restroom while you on the go. A clean nearby public bathroom can be hard to find and can also be unusable. Sit or Squat puts clean public toilets on the map, by indicating clean locations with a green “Sit” rating and less desirable toilets have a red “Squat."

You can even rate and review a bathroom, and share your experiences to help others.

2. Splittr -

Frontline SMS is an open-source application that allows NGOs and corporations to communicate with the local community in places where there’s no internet connection. It was first developed in 2004, to help NGOs collaborate with the local community since it was practically impossible for these NGOs to travel great distances to talk to people.


5. Mimo

Mimo is an app that users can use to learn how to code in a number of languages, including Swift, JavaScript, Java, HTML and a lot more. 

The basic lessons for all of the languages are free, and the subsequent lessons can be unlocked by sharing the app on social media or the paid version. The app walks users through basic topics like variables, right up to slightly advanced topics such as closures (in Swift). New courses will be added to the app very soon, with topics such as “Hacking” in the “Coming Soon” section of the app.
