I was very impressed to read about Chennai’s Shravan and Sanjay, who are 10 and 14 years old, and are probably the country’s youngest app developers. They specialize in building education-related apps and have, in fact, already had three of their apps accepted by Apple and are available for download on iPhones and iPads. Amazingly, they have already established a company, called GoDimensions, are trying to build the world’s lightest tablet computers, and have even earmarked fifteen percent of their profits towards charity to support children’s education. NDTV reports:
The budding techies say Steve Jobs and Bill Gates inspired them. They want to specialise in educational apps. Presently, they are developing an app for students who miss classes.

This would reach your device and you can watch the entire class room activity by the teacher, the exercises etc”. Another app in the making is “mobile navigation for the visually challenged”. Imagine the mobile phone giving voice alerts to a visually challenged person about the things around him or her! That’s what they are working at.
