Here To Help

We believe that the design, development, and production of mobile apps shouldn’t be the exclusive domain of IT departments or professional coders. With our innovative and easy-to-use mobile app creation platform, we seek to help everyone who has ever thought about building an app turn their ideas into reality. This contest is an opportunity to reward students who share our desire to improve the world through building communities and strengthening relationships with technology.
