WHAT IS IEEEMADC?

IEEEmadC (Mobile Applications Development Contest), a 6-8 months competition initially focused to inspire student members in Europe, Middle East, and Africa to develop mobile applications escalated into a globally recognized competition very soon. It provides IEEE student members a new interesting activity and a chance to develop something which achieves IEEE mission and make its member lives and times more valuable.

STATISTICS AND FACTS ABOUT MOBILE APP USAGE

Mobile apps are software applications designed to run on smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices. They are typically available through app stores which are operated by the owners of the mobile operating system. By 2020, mobile apps are forecast to generate around 189 billion U.S. dollars in revenues via app stores and in-app advertising. Some of the most popular operating system-native stores are Apple’s App Store, Google Play, as well as Windows Phone Store and BlackBerry App World. As of June 2016, there were 2.2 million available apps at Google Play store and two billion apps available in the Apple’s App Store, the two leading app stores in the world.
