Seidenberg Student Wins Mobile App Contest
On Thursday, December 6th, an interdisciplinary group of Pace University students gathered together at the new Lubin Entrepreneurship Lab. The occasion? To design innovative mobile apps at the Mobile App Design Contest—an open exhibition in which the finalists were decided by a public vote. Participants included students from computer science, marketing, art, business, and more. It was an exciting exhibition, showing off the variety of issues students are able to tackle from a mobile perspective. The ideas ranged from a Pace-based textbook exchange app to an at-your-fingertips concession stand app. Apps were judged based on aesthetic appeal, innovative features, complexity of problem space and ease of use. The winner, Julie Gauthier, designed an app called “We Go Together.” The main goal of “We Go Together” is to act as a socially enhanced scheduling app, allowing the users to share calendars, see what their friends are up to, and to keep up with upcoming local events. She said that, “I worked extremely hard to have a great presentation, because I didn’t know what kind of format it would be, or who would be there. It was a fantastic opportunity for me to gain experience pitching my ideas.” For further descriptions of the apps presented at the Mobile App Design Contest, please visit this page.
