Hi,

Vibration Series of Mobile apps for deaf-blind i.e. MorseTrainer and PocketSMS, from Bapsi, have been nominated for finals in the Vodafone Mobiles For Good Award 2012.

Also, the approach of “marketing mobile phones for those, who fall between the cracks” from Bapsi has been selected as a finalist in the mBillionth Award South Asia 2012.

I was the co-designer and developer of both the applications.

The grand final of the two programmes is going to be organized on July 21st at Eros Hotel, Nehru Place, New Delhi. On the same day the 3rd International Mobile & Telecom Congress 2012, Mobile Asia EXPO will also be organized.

This recognition will surely help in spreading the word, and, help in reaching the target audience of the application and their well-wishers.

I hope these new innovations will make the lives of people better, and,  help in solving their accessibility problems, thereby, achieving the main aim of  bringing them into the mainstream, and, leading an independent life.

Thanks 🙂
