PesaDroid—The M-PESA Android App

If you are an Android user you can now download an App dubbed as PesaDroid from the Android market that lets you track your M-PESA transactions.
PesaDroid works by analyzing and extracting information from an M-PESA message in your sms inbox. The App scans your inbox for M-PESA transaction notifications to retrieve, sort and store them on a database on your phone.
The app comes in two versions; free and premium version. The premium version of PesaDroid enables you to forward the notifications to your email.
PesaDroid stands benefit micro-entrepreneurs in Kenya in keeping records of transactions with their customers. However, most of these small scale entrepreneurs do not own smart phones. PesaDroid is a great app but it might take quite some time before it gets many users.
