2. Twitter App

As at 2015, many people could say: “I don’t like that Twitter thing”. But in  2016, Nigeria has the most Twitter users on the continent and this continues to grow with each passing day.

I personally think that Twitter’s attractiveness lies in the fact that you can easily interact with celebrities and icons, you might not easily interact with on other platforms.

It also helps you get breaking news. Stay informed with the local and global news that matters to you most, as it happens. For some, Twitter has replaced the newspaper.

3. Whatsapp

This is like the most used app in Nigeria, even our parents use it. What more can one say? And now families even have Whatsapp groups, churches too.

WhatsApp Messenger is a FREE messaging app available for Android and other smartphones. WhatsApp uses your phone’s Internet connection (4G/3G/2G/EDGE or Wi-Fi, as available) to let you message and call friends and family. Switch from SMS to WhatsApp to send and receive messages, calls, photos, videos, documents, and Voice Messages.

4. Blackberry Messenger

Popularly known as BBM, it was formerly exclusive to Blackberry phones which made it kind of prestigious. ever since it became available to even Android phones, everyone has a BBM app.

And now, BBM has a unique feature to protect your privacy and keep you in control: Retract – The ability to take back messages and photos, even after you’ve sent them. Retract before they’ve been ‘R’ (Read) and they’ll never know!

5. NUS App

Nigerian University Scholarships also has an app, one that is very much in use by students, and which you should also get if you want to be in touch with the latest scholarship updates both locally and internationally.
