And the Winner of the global Mobile App Olympics 2012 is...


A remarkable team featuring a trio of NYU Wagner students has just been notified that the mobile app they invented in 48 hours of inspired collaboration and toil has won the gold medal in the global Mobile App Olympics 2012.

High-fives to Miriam Altman, Barrie Charney-Golden, and Alexandra Meis, as well as their teammate from the Courant Institute at NYU!

Their journey to digital gold in the final, global phase of the competition started at one of the BeMyApp Weekend gatherings (starting Feb. 24) held in Berlin, Paris, London, Dallas, San Francisco, and NYC.

About 40 apps were quick-created that weekend. Six regional finalists -- including the Kinvolved team -- were approved to enter the global phase of the competition. From the start, the unique competition brought together contestants with diverse talents, expertise, and skill sets.

Finally, on Feb. 29, the Kinvolved app came out on top in the global online voting process in which 3,422 people participated.

More details on the final results of the Mobile App Olympics are here.
