Mobile Apps

Exciting things are underway for NYC BigApps, the City’s premier open data software competition! 

While we’re not ready to reveal all the surprises in store just yet, we are excited to announce that NYC BigApps 2013 will focus on leveraging technology to help solve NYC’s key challenges, or “BigIssues.”

CitizenConnect, for example, helps tackle a BigIssue with a focus on income mobility, workforce support, and job placement.

Now is your chance to weigh in on what BigIssues the BigApps community should tackle this year. Share your great ideas and get involved by completing our brief survey!
