Kids Aged 12, 13 Yrs Develop Mobile App On Social Issues

BENGALURU: They may be all of 12 and 13 years of age, but two city-based students have developed an Android social application 'vPledge' that was unveiled here today. 


Priyal Jain and Prateek Mahesh have devised the app, through which people can pledge to take up causes like conserving nature, donating meals, feeding stray dogs, using public transport and ensuring better health, hygiene or education. 

This was after an exposure to Android for Kids at a technology summer camp hosted by AcadGild, the company said in a release. 

Through the vPledge app, an individual can make a pledge such as planting 10 trees. 

On successful completion of a pledge, vPledgers, as the app's users are called, are allowed to share the accomplishment on social media channels, tag friends, challenge them and also grab points that can be redeemed.
