DEWA is the first leading governmental entity to develop smart applications for smart phones and tablets including Android-based devices, iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Phone 7, BlackBerry, BlackBerry Playbook, Blackberry 10, and Windows Phone 8.

DEWA’s applications include several services and features that enable customers to keep up-to-date with the Authority’s news, learn more about its latest activities, watch the video gallery, use the bill enquiry and electronic payment service (ePay and mPay services), send photos and comments to the customer service centre, learn about the working hours of the customer service offices, and locate the nearest payment centre using Google Maps.
