Indian kids build apps for Android, iOS
| by Naina Khedekar |
With the growing popularity of smartphones and apps, even children as young as 10 to 12 years old may operate apps effortlessly. However, brothers Sanjay (10) and Shravan (12) have gone ahead and have started building apps, reports TOI. The duo's company is called ‘Go Dimensions’ and two of their apps have together crossed the 5,000 downloads mark, with a majority of downloads being from the US and China. These kids use Apple’s iOS kit and spend about two hours every day on their projects - only after they finish their school homework. The kids reveal that they are inspired by Steve Jobs, followed by their parents Kumaran and Jyothilakshmi.

Their agenda for the future includes an app to create awareness about the increase in pollution in Chennai. "The app we are planning for the Apple and Android platforms will be based on location-based media. It will bring you the pollution status of the city at your fingertips," says Sanjay, the younger of the two. The two brothers set aside 15 percent of the company's total profit for the poor.
