Information about the project
Gallery of Malaysian Government Mobile Applications
Gallery of Malaysian Government Mobile Applications (GAMMA) is a one stop centre housing all government mobile applications, developed by MAMPU, Prime Minister Department to enable the public (including business and international community) to browse and download secure, official and authentic government mobile applications from a single gateway. GAMMA is a mobile-based Government innovation service aimed at diversifying Government service channels through smart devices. Coinciding with the tagline "Mobility, Smart Lifestyle", GAMMA can be accessed by anyone, anywhere, anytime and is available on widely used platforms; Android, iOS and Windows. GAMMA is downloadable to smart devices for free, has user-friendly features enabling easy and quick searches. Prior to GAMMA, users have to search in various platforms to locate the official mobile applications. GAMMA also provides a mobile application development tool called GAMMA AppGen which enables agencies to build mobile applications, quickly with minimal programming and costs, using built-in components that can be tailored to specific needs. Besides improving service delivery via mobile delivery channel, the implementing model used has enabled the Government to make substantial savings by sharing of government infrastructure and licensing of software. Since the implementation of GAMMA in October 2015, there have been 226,724 visitors to the GAMMA portal. Currently, there are 180 mobile applications that are being offered for free in GAMMA, with 1.8 million downloads thus far. Looking ahead, GAMMA will expand mobile application development to the public through crowdsourcing. This initiative enables people to build mobile application based on their community needs.
