In June this year, a speed-test app called TRAI-MySpeed was released to the public. It made headlines immediately. For a while, it was one of the most sought-after apps in both Google Play Store and the AppStore, raking in millions of downloads.
Little did anyone notice that it was designed by the C-DAC’s Mobile Seva division, government’s official app factory as we described in yesterday’s story. If you are an iPhone user, you’d have probably noticed Zia Saquib as the developer. Saquib is the executive director of C-DAC, India’s highest computing organization.
