Thirty computer science students from the University of Bristol took part in the Mubaloo Appathon at the weekend, with the aim of developing an app within 28 hours.

Event sponsors Mubaloo had run a series of seminars before the event, with Android app Location Settings winning the People’s Choice award. The app enables people to assign to-dos to locations so that when you are in the vicinity you receive a reminder e.g. when near the corner shop a reminder to buy milk will pop up.

The Judges Choice award, as decided by Mubaloo CEO Mark Mason and the University of Bristol head of department Ian Hoyler, went to Lifebook, which uses the Facebook API to users to create collages of photos from their Facebook photos through various tags.

Mason said: “The quality of the apps produced is exceptional, especially when you consider the majority of the students had never developed an app before. We are really impressed with what the students have all achieved in 28 hours.

"The Mubaloo Appathon really highlights the students desire to learn about mobile app development. For the students to work over a weekend, with no sleep, and spend their own time coming to our seminars and preparing for the competition, just shows how much they wanted to have this learning experience."
