Counting down to App Launch 2016!

It’s an exciting time at Apps for Good as we’re counting down to this year’s App Launch. In just 1 week we’ll be officially launching 7 amazing, student-created apps. At the event on 4 February, hosted by Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, we’ll be celebrating the achievements of the student teams who have created apps to change their world.
