Zimbabwean teen Takudzwa Caitano develops messaging app

A student from Zimbabwe called Takudzwa Caitano, with the help of his friends, has developed a messaging application called GC Messenger through the technology organisation he originated called Globe Connect.

Takudzwa Caitano revealed this on his Facebook feed that together with his team he had developed a “revolutionary” instant messaging platform called GC Messenger. The platform allows users to communicate with anyone using text, photos, videos and video calls. It allows users to create broad online communities (commonly referred to as groups) of up to 5000 participants. For those that want to showcase their exploits in music, soccer, cooking, modelling, art, or any activity GC Messenger is the perfect app as it allows users to create channels and fellow users can subscribe to those. Now that’s special.

Add to that, the app is equipped with secure cloud storage that allows you to keep and organize all the wonderful, special and memorable moments in a safe place. With end to end encryption as one of its features, the app is complete.

Seventeen year old Takudzwa Caitano partnered with University of Zimbabwe student Simbarashe Andrea and Tavaka Tsigo, the graphics designer. Andrea spoke highly of the app, “GC Messenger is more than an instant messaging app, and it is the ultimate aphrodisiac for communication and connecting with the world. It is going to bring communities closer together and build a united and collaborative social fabric.”

GC Messenger is Globe Connect’s first product. Takudzwa Caitano is currently studying his A Level at Nyanga High Marist Brothers. He attained 17 As at Ordinary Level. He is also a Yale Young Global and African Scholar.

At the moment, the app is currently available to Android users, but with time, versions for other systems will be created.
