From one of the innovative corners of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, comes a free android mobile application by name nFile. It is intended to make news easily accessible and handy to all. nFile is the first ever stand-alone android news reader in Ghana that comes with multi-sourced news articles which are focused on enhancing news accessibility. It features a list of news categories that makes it appreciable by all readers.
nFile comes with incredible features that allows the user to customize text size, update all news articles by pull-to-refresh, change application background and swiping to read the next or previous articles. Users can change their views to landscape or portrait to suit their preferences. It gives users the opportunity to share the articles on Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp and other social media platforms. The interface of the application is perfectly simple and usable by intuition.
nFile is the brain child of JPadMobile, a start-up mobile software company which was founded a year ago by a student from the mathematics Department of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.
“I was learning how to code android so I decided to put an idea on paper only to realise that something awesome as nFile could actually come out” says Joseph Paddy (developer, nFile app). It has over 100 downloads from the Google Play store after a day of its media launch. “As we can already taste success just a day after the launching of this app, it’s a motivation to us to work harder and come up more mind blowing apps”, said by David Owusu Jnr (graphics, nFile app)
It is the aim of jPadMobile developers to stay unique with its mobile applications. Consequently, it has a feature in nFile that allows users to leave comments and views in a form of a discussion about a particular article that they read. This is a feature which is not found in any news application. nFile has been optimised to load faster and reduce internet data consumption.
