Wow, I wasn’t expecting this so soon. The first app from West Africa is in the Store. Way to go people, proud of ya’all. FirstBank is as the name suggests, the first bank in Nigeria, if not in the black Africa. It is a reputed bank in the Country, and they are providing their customers information via this app. This is not a Transaction app for example. Here is the description from the Store:

First Bank of Nigeria Plc app provides Branch and ATM locations nearest you and information about FirstBank products and services. First Bank Nigeria Plc is a national icon and an international player in the financial services industry. The bank is over 110 years in existence during which it pioneered the art and science of modern banking in the country, becoming Nigeria’s biggest and most prosperous financial services group

This app provides Branch and ATM locations nearest you and information about FirstBank products and services


We can only congratulate Solutaris LLC on this first debut in the Store. Keep up the good work. If you are a first bank customer please go right ahead and download this app via the Source link.

[Update 2012-11-12] I have just been informed by IronHide below in the comments that in fact this App is not the First West African App but actually the 6th! The correct sequence according to him should be: ClassicRSS, Movietimes, Infoware Finance, Diamond Bank, First Bank and Slyde. This is nothing short of a feat knowing the challenges devs out of that part of the world have to face, like bandwidth and resource challenges. Well done people, nicely done indeed. Thanks IronHide for this tip.
