Microsoft Announces Windows 8 Apps for Social Good Winners


Last November, Microsoft launched the Windows 8 Apps for Social Good Contest. The public voted for its favorite apps and our judges voted for theirs. A wide variety of apps were submitted covering a number of fields, including health care, nutrition and emergency response.

Below is a screenshot from YumvY, a cooking companion to help you prepare nutritious, healthy meals at home with the goal of addressing the obesity epidemic and related diseases like diabetes. YumvY was the People’s Choice Award Winner.
