    Olaround app from ufone & activation,gifting of VAS Services via facebook from Telenor were better infact! please perform a better market analysis befor writing such articles

  • Ahmad Umar

    it was purely a biased article towards warid telecom! no introduction to apps from other operators is presented
    I would also like to add that telecom operators have realized that sim selling has reached its peak and is not starting to decline slowly so they are focusing more on offering such apps n VAS. However, their voice performance KPIs are alarmingly low

    to pump up mobile innovation and activity in local Pakistani market, its time for a need of upwards tariff restructure and cut in extra human resource for in market sustainability.

  • Obaid Saleem

    Unless operators make serious efforts in evolution of the content ecosystem, market will continue to struggle and attract limited mass uptake. Some of the challenges include:

    a) Non existence of Local app stores (operator or independent). Lack of motivation at operator or aggregator level, due to impatience on quick payback

    b) No enforcement of intellectual property rights, discouraging innovation

    c) Low revenue share for developers (local content developer can max upto Rs. 50-60k if he is very lucky to sell 20k apps, rarely happens this big!). No fixed retainer fees, no bonuses

    d) OTT (Over-the-top) players and platform app stores have much wider, and cheaper options – due to economies of scale

  • Raja A Khan

    Such a long article on “innovation” and not a single mention of the 3G debacle!

  • 3G/LTE is the main requirement to boost wireless technology but our government is not focusing on it at all. Once LTE is rolled out in our country then you will see flood of new applications, wireless devices and high speed technology in Pakistan. Nothing can be achieved when your market is not up to international standards. People are having iPHONE 5 in Pakistan but cant use LTE and even 3G…then what is the use of such devices and applications those are dependent on high speed.
