Simeon Ononobi, founder of the popular Nigerian payments company, SimplePay, has announced the launch of a new mobile app, MyAds.
The interesting key feature of this app is that it allows users to collect rewards by allowing some ads to display on their mobile phones during an incoming call.
To begin, users will have to install the app on their phone, and after installing the app, the system will seek and gain users’ permission to generate advertisements and to display them on the screen during any incoming call. By this, this app will also earn them some points. According to Simeon, a user can earn up to N15 during a single phone call. Later on, the users can redeem those points and get free talk time for outgoing phone calls and SMS.
The app is available on Android platform and compatible with Airtel, MTN, Etisalat, Glo networks. Users have to register their number in order to earn points during a call.
MyAds will be updated soon to offer for coupons, discounts and Geo-located deals. Currently this app has almost 200 advertisers such as UBA, FCMB, Airtel and MTN.
