Ideas

It will help you greatly if you come to the competition with a new idea for an app – something which you think would be useful, beneficial, and/or fun to use. Your idea could fall under the following categories (though it’s not limited to these):

  • Education
  • Health & Fitness
  • Business and Finance
  • Gaming
  • Music & Entertainment
  • Transport & Travelling
  • Social and communication
  • News
  • Sport
  • Shopping

Good entries will show that the app is solving a real-world problem for real users and that it is doing so in a new or innovative way. In the case of a game, a good app will be one that is addictive, fun, and easy to pick up. Key things to think about here are:

  • What is the app seeking to accomplish?
  • Who will use the app?
  • Has the app been made before? (Note that your app must showcase a new idea or approach to something)
  • Why is this app better than similar apps?
  • What is the size of this app’s potential market?
