Three new apps hit app stores
Three new apps are now available for download in app stores as part of the most recent rounds of NSW Government apps4nsw competitions.
WhoCares by Induct Online, NSW Spend by Appiwork, and TriviaPic NSW by Lakeba were the winning pitches in challenges posed by the Department of Family and Community Services and Young Carers NSW, NSW Procurement and the State Library of NSW respectively.
The apps are now available in the Apple App Store and Google Play.
TriviaPic NSW by Lakeba
State Library of NSW challenge winners Lakeba have developed TriviaPic NSW, to allow interactive access to Library photographic collections via a trivia-style app. The app takes digitised Library images and forms trivia questions from each, prompting users to consider the image's subject and location. The app also allows users to contribute information they may know about images to be provided back to the Library about the landmark NSW locations featured in the collections.
NSW Spend by Appiwork
Appiwork have developed NSW Spend to give users a unique way of looking at government procurement spend data. The application uses a sample of data from NSW Procurement and produces visualisations and representations of the data in an easy-to-read and -understand way.
Who Cares by Induct Online
The Who Cares app is a free self-identification tool designed to help young people with caring responsibilities to recognise their role and get the support they need. The app holds a range of real young carer stories, allowing the young carers themselves, as well as their friends, family, and the broader community to both understand the role of carers and be better equipped to support them. The sharing functions enable user to share the knowledge outside the app, into the broader community, giving the app an important role in building awareness about the unique experience of young carers.
