A new group of Miami angel investors is helping to make a 19-year-old college student’s entrepreneurial dream a reality. And they’re looking for more local technology concepts to back.
University of Miami business major Tyler McIntyre’s idea, once launched, will allow anyone who wants to know about nearby restaurants, movie times or tourist attractions, in any city worldwide, to make a free call — rather than scroll through the Internet — and get an immediate computer-voice response.
Here is what you should consider bringing with you:
Positive Attitude and Team Spirit
Extension Cords and Surge Protectors
Head Phones or Headset
Sketch Books and Pencils
Toothbrush (if you plan to work on site all 3 days)
Sleeping bag (in case you want to crash for a few hours)
Like the headline says, a Corona-built game named Bubble Ball (which was our most recent App of the Week) just passed the free version of Angry Birds: Seasons on the App Store’s free apps chart. According to the developer — who is just 14 years old — the physics puzzle game has over a million downloads to date, and the download numbers haven’t even topped off yet.
We’ve been watching Bubble Ball climb the charts today. Heck, we were pretty excited when itreached #2, thinking it could never unseat the mighty Angry Birds. But then, just a few minutes ago, it hit the #1 spot!
Congratulations to developer Robert Nay on this achievement — we’ll be following up on this story with more details about his project and his future plans for it!
