A Totally Free, Non-Monitzed App
Four years ago, I took an idea for a mobile app to help kids submit complete college applications on time to Code For Philly. Code For Philly is the Philadelphia arm of the Code For America Brigade and is a group of developers who want to do good for the community. They build free non-monetized apps. One of the things I wanted was a non-monetized app becuase the college application process is BIG business and I didn’t want to be part of asking kids for money. So we have a license that says our open source code can only be used for non-monetary purposes, meaning, we don’t have ads, never will. I met Bob who was a teacher transitioning to a developer. And I met Aidan who was IT at the DA’s office. And together, we starting building. We realized we needed the voice of truth in this process and reached out to Katelin, a guidance counselor in real life, who made sure all our college application messages were correct. And we were blessed to have many many more volunteer developer and designers bring this to fruition. This app was built by many people who care about you and who want you to succeed.
