Does the app have to be free?
The app does not have to be free, but it does have to be affordable to low income communities. In addition to affordability, the judges will be looking for an app distribution plan that provides enough funding for the app to be maintained post-launch. A reasonable fee could potentially be a part of that sustainability plan.
Should the app have a link to Facebook?
Yes. All apps require a link to Facebook in some way (see tech specs at https://developers.facebook.com/). By linking with Facebook, we hope to promote creative apps that utilize the unique capabilities of and student interest in the world’s largest social network. It is not a requirement that all apps be Facebook apps (i.e. built directly on the Facebook platform).
