World of Apps

The final episode of the series profiles Apps For Good, an organization originally started in Brazil to harness young people's ideas and energies to develop apps that can benefit local communities. In South Africa, LIFE visits with creative artist Nanziwe, who works for the mobile start-up company Bozza and is trying to develop an 'app' to provide young people with sexual and reproductive health information and advice.

In London's East End, LIFE films one young entrepreneur who has developed an app that helps young minority adults who are 'stopped and searched' by the police, recording their locations and their accounts of the treatment they receive. We also visit with Amarah, a young student from Central Foundation Girls' School, who has developed her own 'app' to send messages to friends with an alarm call.
