PETALING JAYA, 24 June 2014 - DiGi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd (DiGi)'s fifth edition of its annual Challenge for Change (DiGiCFC) programme concluded today, with the announcement of the winners for the best mobile applications (apps).
DiGi Challenge for Change is a competition to unearth innovative, community-centric ideas that are then developed into mobile applications. This year more than 2,500 ideas were received in the ideation phase. The five (5) winning ideas became the basis of the 56 full-fledged mobile apps submitted across the five categories in the app development phase. Over RM200,000 in prizes were awarded to the winning application developers and ideators.
Speaking at the event, DiGi's Chief Operating Officer Albern Murty applauded the participants for their creativity and innovativeness in coming up with mobile apps that have fulfilled the criteria outlined by the original ideas, and bring communities together. "Together with our partners, we are pleased to have the opportunity to work with local developer community to build mobile apps that have real potential for commercialisation, adoption while addressing the social needs of Malaysians.
"The maturity of the ideas presented and the mobile apps developed shows that more Malaysians recognise the power of connectivity and mobile apps in driving social innovations across communities. This underscores our vision for Challenge for Change, and takes us a step closer in our effort to deliver Internet For All by helping Malaysians find new and meaningful ways to experience internet and benefit from it," added Albern
