Apps for Amsterdam: smart apps awarded
On 7 November 2012 the prizes were awarded to the app developers who participated in the second Apps for Amsterdam contest. Apps like the anti-safetyapp Makkie Klauwe, trash routes and marketplace Fijnvuil and Parkshark API, an API with parking info that is free to use received prizes in a crowded Pakhuis de Zwijger.
Waag and the City of Amsterdam reward apps in this competition that use open data for mobile, tablet or webbased applications Besides the social and economic value, the jury also looked at the business models behind the apps. After the contest the Appsterdam community helps the developers to elevate their idea to a higher level.
This year, Apps for Amsterdam evolved around six themes that are important to the capital: vacancy, tourism & culture, democracy, mobility, security and energy. A local Amsterdam test panel handed out the People's Choice award. Within each theme there are winners, except for the category Democracy (no entries).
