Want to see what Pakistani mobile app developers and game makers have cooked up since the last time? We take a look at 5 mobile apps and games that have been built by Pakistani designers and programmers to serve the needs of the local audience.
Lets take a look at how these new apps and games do in terms of features, user experience, and functionality.
OBuddy Free Message & Stickers – Communication App
If you ever wanted to have a communication and chatting app from Pakistani mobile developers, then OBuddy is what you’ll get. The communication app lets you send instant messages, share multimedia files, and more.
Basically it’s the local alternative to popular chat apps such as Whatsapp and LINE amongst others. It works on both Wi-FI and data connections. The local developer continues development on the app, promising support for a web portal, security enhancements, live recording of audio and video, and more. Currently, only an Android version is available, with an iOS version coming soon.
We think that as far as chatting apps go, it’s got all the essentials covered. But can it compete against more established rivals? Only time will tell.

Do you work in an organization with changing shifts? Want to keep track of whose shift is it and when? Then you need My Shift Work by Voyze, a local app developer, to keep your schedule all organized and tidy.
This productivity app is handy for employers and employees both so that the concerned personnel can check the rosters and availability of workers at any time of the day. The app features a clean and simple layout with color-coding and icons to organize work shifts. You can even know data related to overtime, sick leaves, vacation, paydays, and more.
