Android Masters 2015

A total of 72 teams from all over the country joined the first inter-school Android app development challenge. These teams all had a goal: to be crowned the first ever Android Masters.

Out of 72, only 10 entries have made to the grand finals that was held in PLDT Innolab, Mandaluyong City last October 23. Each of the finalists were given seven minutes to present their apps in front of distinguished judges from the tech industry and eager audiences who was excited to see some of the greatest ideas come into reality.

Meanwhile, the audience who went to the venue to support their favorite apps also enjoyed with talks from Jomar Tigcal and Andreas Galster on App Indexing and Material design aside from the good food, goodies from our sponsors and the opportunity to experience and play around with the apps of the finalists.

This year, expect more ideas from students all over the country come to life as we once again fire up the competition.
