Mobile giant HUAWEI has recognised the complex role that women perform on a daily basis, and has structured its official app hosting and distribution platform, HUAWEI AppGallery, to serve the requirements of South Africa’s modern women.
HUAWEI’s campaign, called “An App for Every Type of Woman”, showcases handpicked apps matched with different characteristics, interests and lifestyles of the broad range of South African women.
Whether they are homebodies, career-focused, fashionistas, sports fanatics, travellers, shoppers, readers, business powerhouses, financially savvy, or any combination of these, they will find a lifestyle app aligned to them on HUAWEI AppGallery.
Here are a few of the specially curated apps which are showcased:

For the financially-savvy woman, who may also oversee the finances of the household, three apps are recommended.
SnapScan is a mobile payments app, which allows users to pay for things with their phone, including in-store and online transactions, bills, donations, electricity, airtime, and money sending. There is also a wallet function, which can be used for budgeting, and the app is secure, making use of a four-digit pin or a fingerprint.
