February 2016

It’s hard for me to believe that Apps for Good turns 5 this year! 50,000 students have developed 10,000 apps in just 5 years through this amazing nonprofit programme that puts app development curriculum into high school classrooms.

“I’d like to use technology to make day to day life better for everybody,” one of the students told me at the 2016 app launch where this year’s winners showcased their just built apps.

Here is the team from MySoundClash — an app that lets you play music across multiple devices from a single source. It came about because one of the students wanted to share music with the family while on holiday and found sharing a set of ear plugs less than desirable.

The idea is so cutting edge, they only got the tech to work the morning of the launch!
