App Launch 2016 – an evening of celebration

Last Thursday was an exciting day at Apps for Good as we gathered at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park for App Launch 2016. The event marked the launch of Assemble Jobs, BOOKd, GardenKing, MySoundClash, My World of Atoms, One Click Politics and weKonnekt on the market.

At the event the teams presented their problem solving apps, tackling a wide range of issues such as help for young carers, helping get teens tuned into politics and helping students to master the periodic table, to the public. If you want to learn more about the teams and download the apps, head over to our website.

This year’s App Launch was particularly special as we also kicked off our 5th birthday celebrations, with students, Fellows, Experts, teachers & corporate partners sharing their favourite Apps for Good memories and moments across social media. You can get a sneak peak below, and check out Twitter for more (don’t forget to share your own memory using #AfG5years).
