Bringing friends closer through mobile technology

Rudi and Shida were one of 10 groups selected to travel to Lund, Sweden, to participate in the Nokia Imaging Hack-a-thon.

While there, they created a working demonstration of their app which ultimately won them the competition as well as a trip to a Nokia event in Abu Dhabi!
