Congratulations to all of the teams that presented at the ACApps Challenge.

1st Place - BookIt!

The BookIt! app connects Alameda County residents to their local libraries. One of the great features of the app is that you use your smartphone to scan the barcode on a book. The app will then search Alameda County libraries for that book. It displays the availability of the book and allows you to reserve it at the local library branch.

2nd Place - ACPR

Alameda County Parks & Recreation or ACPR is an app that displays parks and recreation information in Alameda County. The map interface lists all parks and recreation locations. But, the best part of the app is that you can search for parks and recreation areas that include specific features like playgrounds, hiking trails, basketball courts etc.

3rd Place - SnapMapper!

This app is described as the Yelp for food stamp users. The app helps people make the most of their funds by finding the store that meets their needs whether that is distance, price or quality. It lets users rate stores, comment about types of food available and identify the ones gouging shoppers or that should not qualify to accept SNAP, the new name for food stamps.
