    Hi Loy,

    I must commend you for taking out time to write this review, we appreciate.

    I'm writing in, an official response from Mobinatrics as the Public Affairs Exec and we should schedule an official interview (I'm avail for that), feel free to tungle.me (http://tungle.me/dika).

    Firstly, lets understand the whole Newshunt ecosystem. Newshunt is brought to you in Nigeria and Africa by Mobinatrics Ltd (www.mobinatrics) located in uptown Apapa as Nigeria foremost and only mobile publishing business amongst several other game-changing applications coming your way this summer. Newshunt is just a taste of what is to come shortly in the mobile play field here in Africa.

    I will love to correct a few things mentioned in the post which includes that Vanguard will be posing a competition to Punch… I don't say so or we don't see it that way. At Mobinatrics, we are more concerned about consumer experience with finding and reading news anywhere they go and so you will be seeing every major Nigerian Newspaper on the Newshunt platform soon such that consumers can toggle between newspapers and seek a second opinion about a news item.

    On Navigation, we haven't got any complaints yet but its highly possible that an over-sensitive track-ball or touch screen can contribute to it… if your device allows you to adjust it, please do, other test with another device.

    On content not being in the right category, we have escalated the issue to our publishing partner (Vanguard) as they manage the CMS, as soon as they effect changes it will be corrected.

    On Vanguard building their own app; we have no objection to it, Mobinatrics/Newshunt is a mobile news aggregator giving consumers options and a fleet of choices in life.

    So who is Eterno? Eterno is our technology partner. When we first thought about mobile publishing some years ago, we wanted to build it from scratch, but we figured we could partner with an established player (actually the biggest in the fastest growing global technology market in the world being India) and we share alot in common with them economy wise, it only makes sense as we are now on our feet running with Newshunt.

    We want to use this opportunity to tell other publishers that Newshunt is real and is provided to the publisher for free, it never cost them a dime.

    But once more we appreciate your doing this post, actually the very first review on Newshunt Nigeria and to that we say congrats to you. Please Loy, tungle.me so we can have a chat ok or tweet me @dikaoha

  6. Not anyone can say undoubtably when txt message dating will explode are pleased did in the last few years on desktop machines. Though, we can almost say for sure that it will be here very soon. However, to make it easy for users to be able to connect and find what they’re interested in came across assess how this type of person hooking up currently. Less several years ago it wasn’t possible to get in touch to everybody in your social circle with some clicks. This has to be quickly possible. Were now seeing people doing a similar but using their palm.

    MMS dating will dsicover an outburst in the next few months. With almost everyone and their dog having access to a phone, it’s inevitable that people will look for ways of reaching out to the dating world through their devices. In fact, it’s already happening to a certain degree. People carry their android almost anywhere they go. Making txt dating so simple anyone can do it.

    Well right now it doesn’t much impress me since I can go full screen with Opera and it seems to be a lot quicker at the moment, although once they get this whole thing off the ground it might shoot on past much of the competition. No idea but looks very interesting.
