New York Universitys Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences will host its inaugural Student iPhone App Show, with Apple awarding the best application, on Wednesday, May 6, 5 to 9 p.m., at Warren Weaver Hall, 251 Mercer Street (at Mercer and West 4th Streets), 13th Floor Lounge (enter on Gould Plaza at West 4th and Greene Streets).
The iPhone Show features a range of student programs, such as Crossroads, which uses GPS mapping to plot memories of New York locations, iCompareU, a social gossip program, and several music programs, including iCompose, a music composition program, and Vinyl, which plays mp3s as if on an old-fashioned LP turntable. There are also several games. These include Chase, an arcade chase game, SockPuppeteer, which turns any picture into a sound-responding puppet, and a detective game of logic, Who Is It? A panel composed of NYU faculty and Apple executives will determine the best student app. A complete list of the NYU iPhone student apps, along with screenshots and descriptions, may be found here.
Reporters interested in attending the show should contact James Devitt, NYUs Office of Public Affairs, at 212.998.6808 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The show is the culmination of iPhone Programming, among the nations first iPhone app courses, taught by Nathan Hull, a clinical professor in NYUs Department of Computer Science. Apple has awarded scholarships to several of the shows participants to attend the June Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco.
