The Problem

Every day, hundreds of new mobile applications—or “apps”—are created for smart phones and tablets.  You are a developer hoping to design a new app that will become a hit.  What will this new app do, how will the user interact with it, and who will be its target audience?

What will be the next great mobile app?

Students will review popular mobile apps, as well as tips for coming up with new ideas, and design their own mobile app.
