Free Software Good News For Kiwi Developers

FREE SOFTWARE GOOD NEWS FOR KIWI DEVELOPERS


MONDAY 7th AUGUST


A groundbreaking free software service launching next Monday is set to unleash New Zealand developers onto the global market.

Using cutting edge technology, Mambezi.com allows the consumer to get software for free – permanently. When the software is used, a small advertisement appears on the screen.

“Consumers get free software, and developers can access a global market,” says company founder Mark Stuart. “Everybody wins.”

“This initiative will revolutionise the way we use our computers.”

Every month, over 42 million programs are downloaded from the Internet. With an extra 90 million people expected to be connecting to the net in the next year alone, the possibilities for exposure are astounding.

Mambezi.com is the brainchild of a New Zealand company called Yippee Ltd, and is using the latest in Internet technology. Because it is based in New Zealand, Mambezi.com offers a unique opportunity to launch local developers onto the global stage.


How does it work?

Simply put, if you want a piece of software you download it for free. In exchange, Mambezi.com asks you to provide basic information about your interests.

When you use your software an unobtrusive ad will appear on your screen. The information that appears will be tailored to your interests. Every time you go online, this will be updated.

Mambezi.com does not use your details for any other purpose, and doesn’t track your Internet usage. Advertisers pay every time the ad is viewed. Revenue is shared with the software developer.


World leader

Mambezi.com is one of the first companies worldwide to embrace this new model of distribution. With their patentable Infoware system, they provide consumers with relevant promotions, whilst insuring privacy.

“We can give users a valuable product for free, and deliver them information that is relevant to them,” says Mr. Stuart. “As far as the net is concerned, the future is free.”
