Messaging app Moya has 3.5 million daily active users and 6.5 million monthly active users in South Africa, developer Datafree has announced. Datafree CEO Gour Lentell has also told MyBroadband that the app has consistently ranked in the top 5 most downloaded applications on the Google Play store in South Africa for several weeks.
What sets Moya apart from its competitors is that it doesn’t consume your mobile data but relies on reverse-billing agreements with MTN, Vodacom, Telkom, and Cell C.
According to Datafree, Moya lets you send messages and voice notes, and offers access to several other services without paying for the data. The company said that Moya works on the supported networks even when you have no airtime or data balance.
