Kytabu App designed to make textbooks affordable on XO and other devices

This digital textbook app, which works with textsooks needed in Kenya and elsewhere in Africa, provides access to a library of digital versions of required texts, allowing the buying of books or chapters of books on a tablet through mobile money transactions.
