Huge thank you to the Ushahidi community for helping translate the app, it was sort of fitting that the crowd helped us translate our crowdsourcing app.

White-label Functionality

Ushahidi iOS now supports white-labeling, allowing you to re-brand and publish your own customized stand-alone version to the App Store.
