ITA celebrates graduation of 48 Omanis trained on mobile apps

MUSCAT: The Information Technology Authority (ITA) celebrated on Wednesday the graduation of the 6th batch of Sas Mobile Apps Development Centre consisting of 48 talented Omanis who were trained on mobile applications development as part of 3 months training programme on 3 operating systems IOS, Android and Hybrid, resulting in the production of 27 mobile applications.
The event was attended by Dr Salim bin Sultan al Ruzaiqi, CEO of ITA, ITA’s management and employees.
During the ceremony, 4 developed apps were showcased and introduced by the graduated trainees selected as the best successful projects.
The first best mobile app showcased called “nSmart Restaurant”, developed by Shihab bin Hussain al Aamri. “The idea of this app is to make it easier and faster for customers to order food from restaurant through the mobile app which is operated on NFC technology. Customers would only need to use their mobile phones to order food immediately after sitting on the restaurant’s table. This app also helps restaurants to receive and collect orders quicker than before,” Al Aamri said.
“Through the mobility training programme offered by Sas Mobile Apps Development Centre, we learned the fundamentals of building apps for smartphones, and the trainers helped us to implement our projects step by step. Besides, the learning environment at the centre was attractive and encouraging for creativity and innovation,” he further commented.
The second best app which was showcased was “Yusr”, developed by Ibtisam bint Ali al Mubihisi and Maia bint Ahmed al Bahri.
Speaking about the app, Ibtisam said: “Yusr app aims to provide users with a useful platform to request services from different companies in various professions to meet customer needs. It simplifies the process of applying for housekeepers, transfer service, servants, chef booking, cleaning service and hospitality service.”
“Dwaiee” mobile app was also among the best projects developed by Arwa bint Said al Shanfari and Anwar bint Zaid al Mahrami.
About the app, Arwa said “Dwaiee” app is a tool that helps patients to take medicine on time. It equips them with appropriate knowledge that increases their medicine awareness and adherence.
Furthermore, users can have repository with all medicines taken on-the-go any time at anywhere.
“Dwaiee” app notifies the user to take the medicine prior or after food for the specified time by the physician.
The third best mobile app showcased was “Tiny Link”, developed by Zainab bint Said al Shithani and Dalal bint Hussain al Lawati.
Describing their app, Zainab said: “It is a communication platform between nurseries, parents and nannies.
“Nannies can share with parents the daily reports of their kids and parents can view reports in their accounts. It also shows weekly summery graphical representation about the kid.”
Additionally, nurseries can manage the accounts of nannies and kids and share the schedule of their events with the nannies and parents.” — ONA
