Are USSD Codes phasing out in Uganda? From MTN Uganda’s point of view, shortcodes are old school and smart service applications now deserve the front row shield. After successfully integrating the MY MTN App to its Subscriber base, the Yello telco now has a new MOMO App trailing its digital path.
The standard MY MTN App went live a couple of years ago as a self-service application that features both full account control, and mobile money integration served in a single user dashboard.
Well, the 2 in 1 process seemed a hectic path for the telco that decided to launch a new fully dedicated Mobile money services app dubbed MTN Momo that has turned out to be a must-have for every Smartphone user with a Yello SIMCard.
Among the exciting features of the new App include the ability to download your Mobile Money statements and perform all transactions you would have pulled off using the Yello camp’s *185# shortcode with convenience shipped into play.
