We receive hundreds of press releases for new games, apps or viagra on a daily basis and it takes something truly special to rise to the top and capture our attention.

However one of the other ways to guarantee our attention is to point out the product in question is made in SA which generally all but guarantee’s a post about it.

The latest product to do this is Sounds of Africa version 1 which is simply an iOS application that lets you play the sounds of African animals while looking at a picture of the animal.

And seeing that we don’t all have Lions wandering the street or African Eagles as messenger birds this can even be downloaded by locals.
