The Dubai Smart City App Hack awards the best apps in these five smart city challenges:

Welcome to the Dubai Smart City App Hack

Dubai Internet City (DIC), the MENA region’s largest ICT free zone, is the official partner for Dubai’s Smart City App Hack project, which will connect the UAE’s local app and tech ecosystem with developers from around the world to create products and applications that will help improve the lives of citizens.

The Dubai Smart City App Hack launched on June 13 and during these 5 months, developers, entrepreneurs and citizens who wanted to get involved in the building of a Smart City participated in the process of creating and developing their apps, receiving mentorship from a global team of online experts.

During the final phase of app submission, we have received 43 great apps. It was a tough decision but at the end, 10 finalists were invited to present live at the City Final in GITEX, on October 20, where Boxit Co was proclaimed the Dubai SCAH champion! See more photos and details from the event:
