Appy Saúde: Angola’s countrywide health directory

In this project, we developed a countrywide directory for Angola’s healthcare system, enabling citizens to find their nearest hospitals, pharmacies, and more.

Developed by Aplexa’s in-house team, Appy Saúde uses a backend database, device location services, multi-language functionality, and maps integrations to provide Angolans with a robust healthcare directory.

This app’s journey began when client Appy realized that there was no centralized directory in which Angolan citizens could look up nearby healthcare facilities. Spotting a gap in the market, Appy decided to take hospital and pharmacy directories from non-existent to fully modernized, and commissioned Aplexa to help them design and build a mobile listing app.

Due to the wide range of phones in use in Angola, this project required particular attention to performance, and we gained some key insights into how to make the app run smoothly even on older, varied hardware.

Appy Saúde is now used daily throughout the country.

Aplexa is proud to have collaborated with Appy for this project, and hope the app serves a key need for the country of Angola in the years to come!
