Instabug, which provides mobile app developers with an easy tool for tracking bugs, has been nominated the only African finalist in The Next Web’s Mobile Startup Rally, a competition attracting 100-plus applicants worldwide, according to a report in HumanIPO.
Developed by Egyptians Omar Gabr and Moataz Soliman, Instabug allows mobile app developers to add a single line of code to an app while Instabug runs in the background. Users can then use various techniques to highlight bugs or report issues, with Instabug submitting feedback and statistics to the developer.
More than 100 applicants from all over the world participated in a series of video pitches and interviews to make it to the final 15 who will present on stage in October at TNW Conference USA.
“The biggest technology and media trends are influenced by mobile,” TNW said. “That’s why this year’s competition is focusing on the most mobile-minded startups.”
Five more finalists will be added at the event from among exhibitors.
Instabug has already won the MIT Enterprise Forum Arab Business Plan Competition and been accepted into the first Google for Entrepreneurs program.
