The RumahSedap app comes from the fresh food e-commerce company, eRumahSegar. The app uses Nova magazine’s API to showcase cooking recipes for its users. It also allow users living in Jakarta area to also buy ingredients from RumahSegar.
Solite Studio’s Sakera Math was originally a Nokia S40 game which recently won the Rookie Game of the Year 2012 at Mobile Games Developer War 4. Just as its name implies, players have to save 20 tourism spots in Indonesia from imminent danger by solving math questions on each dropping fireball.
