Meanwhile, Menkominfo Rudiantara who also attended the event revealed that events such as Indonesia Next Apps 4.0 could be a stimulus for the development of media-based economy and communication. Applications can be rated in the creative sector of the creative sector. “This basic economy needs networking, devices, and solid applications without it being able to walk, so I really appreciate events like this,” he said.
In addition to the winners of these categories, there was a winner with a special category, the category of media choice. So the media that covered the event held at Mid Plaza was given the authority to choose one of the favorite applications.
As one of the media that comes, of course, Gizmologi should try various applications on display in booth Indonesia Next Apps 4.0 that has been provided. Due to the relatively narrow running time, I did not fully try all the existing apps. However, of the many applications that are tried, there is the most interest me, the application Dijamin Halal.
Dijamin Halal is an application developed by Tim Farifam. Not only because it is beneficial to the majority of Indonesian people who are Muslims, the use of this application is very easy. Yes, I just type the name of the desired food or product in the available search field. Later, the information halal product is listed. For example, noodles from Korea Samyang that could make people excited because suspected of containing pork. So I search the name instant noodles, it turns out that the result is already halal, Gizmolovers!
My choice is not missed, it turns out from the many media that present favored the application to make it a winner in the Media Favorite category. Though useful, unfortunate once the Dijamin Halal app is only available in the less popular Tizen OS in Indonesia.
Yes, there may be a point, too, because similar applications in the Android OS has a lot. One of them is Halal MUI which claimed as the official application of LPPOM MUI.
Congratulations to the winners of Indonesia Next Apps 4.0, keep the good work!
