The Check-in App – Winner of Vodafone Foundation’s App Aid 2013
In 2013, Beyond Blue won the Vodafone Foundation’s App Aid competition, resulting in the Check-in App being developed and released in 2014.
As one of five charity organisations selected to take part, Beyond Blue teamed up with Melbourne app developers, Two Bulls, to develop an app that could change the world for the better.
To bring this app to market, Beyond Blue used the crowd funding website Pozible to raise $10,000 in three weeks. Vodafone Foundation matched dollar for dollar up to $10,000 and a bonus $25,000 for winning the competition (having the most number of supporters).
A special thank you to the following individuals and organisations who supported us in making the app possible:
