The Innovative Use of Mobile Applications in the Philippines: Lessons for Africa

Mobile phones are now the primary form of telecommunication in developing countries and they are used for communications, information and, more recently, access to a range of services from m-Banking to m-Education and m-Governance. The transformation of society by mobile telephony, and especially mobile applications, is perhaps most profound in the Philippines. This publication digs deeper into the Philippine experience and attempts to identify best practices and lessons learned.
