Female Developer Builds Yoruba Watch Face That Tells The Time In Yoruba (Photos)


MoyinOluwa Adeyemi is a graduate of the Obafemi Awolowo University Ile-Ife, Osun State Nigeria where she studied Computer Science, she works as a Software Engineer at Swifta System and as stated earlier also a co-organizer at Google Developers Group.

She got this idea on a Friday evening after work when she looking at a clock and wondered if a there can be clock that has the ability to tell time in local dialect. ”What if it could tell the time in Yoruba?” It was that same question that lead to her quest for the development of an Android Watch Face that can actually tell the time in the Yoruba Language. She later did extensive research and got ideas from her friend before developing a working prototype.
The app description on Google Play Store goes thus;
Yorùbá Watch Faces is a collection of Watch Faces built in a popular local Nigerian dialect; the Yorùbá Language. There are currently two Watch Faces in the collection. The illustrations were created by @TheVunderkind and they depict a man and a woman dressed in the traditional Yorùbá attire. The tone-marked letters were gotten from YorubaName.com. The Watch Faces work on all screen types; chin, square and circle.
