School's Out Hackathon

Apps for Aptitude is planning something big...REALLY BIG. The School's Out Hackathon to be held from June 13th-14th at Rackspace in San Antonio, Texas. Join hundreds of high schoolers as they create in the largest hackathon of its kind. Programmers and beginners are welcome and best of all, it's free. Join us for cash prizes, free t-shirts, lectures, and workshops at our hackathon.

Cards for A Cause

One of the major problems facing students today is a way to have study materials available on the go. Apps for Aptitude has a solution.

We wanted to make sure that users could have access to a multitude of flashcards that will range from advanced mathematics to basic English concepts to SAT vocabulary guides. Cards for a Cause brings millions of flashcards to your mobile device with the simple touch of a button. It's Simple, Clean, and Efficient.

The revenue generated from this application will be donated to programs fighting illiteracy in San Antonio, increasing education for everyone.
