Fasmicro ( the parent company of Tekedia) will be participating in the Google Developer Challenge for sub-Sahara Africa. Accordingly, there will be minor delays in the opening of all Apps in Ovim AppStore. Because of the terms of the competition which eliminates any publicly available apps, we will not be releasing most of the Apps; so we will run only some Apps while the key ones will be used for the competition. We ask our customers and fans to understand.
Ovim App Store is hosted in apps.fasmicro.net.
