New York University’s 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 descr 500
