Mobile Apps Challenge 2016 winners announced

The Mobile Apps Challenge celebrates the innovative mobile development by U-M students, faculty, and staff. 39 participants submitted 16 videos this year featuring a working app or prototype. A panel of judges from around campus selected the top three apps based on creativity, usability and utility. 

Matt Jacobs and Olivia Walch, both students at the Rackham Graduate School, took home the first prize with SketchAnything. The app, available now in the Apple App Store, automatically generates a step-by-step drawing guide for any image. The guides are generated by complex mathematical formulas and presented in a simple, easy to use interface.
