The digital solution was launched to facilitate access to educational books. Initially launched in South Africa, it is now aiming for the West African market. 

Snapplify is an edtech solution developed by a South African startup. It provides easy access to recommended textbooks. The Cape Town-based startup was founded in 2011 by Wesley Lynch.

The solution has a mobile app accessible for devices running Android or iOS. Through the app, a user can create an account and access the electronic versions of the books and textbooks. The catalogs vary from country to country due to applicable laws and depending on the textbooks used in the concerned country.  

In 2022, the start-up began its West African expansion project since many regional institutions are registered on the platform. "Schools and tertiary institutions are looking for high-quality educational resources that are pertinent and suitable for their region. [...]  Snapplify is providing them with exactly that," Wesley Lynch says. 

Snapplify is growing rapidly, with offices in South Africa, Kenya, the UK, and the US. It has raised about $2 million to accelerate its growth in new markets. Its userbase is also growing fast as proven by Play Store data. Since its launch, the Android version of its mobile app has been downloaded more than 100,000 times.
