Full List of Nominations

Former ‘Colbert Report’ writer and friend of the Hub Frank Lesser has teamed up with Tavet Gillson and George King to create the “ON?” App, which answers the question that has long plagued the tech savvy amongst us, “Is my phone on or off?”

As Frank writes in The New York Times:

ON? determines if your phone is on, reliably and safely, with over 99 percent accuracy. Just open the app on your phone, tap a single button, and get ready to join the revolutiON?!

As ON?’s lead creative director, Tavet Gillson, told me, “You shouldn’t have to turn something off and then back on again to know that it’s on. I want to know that my phone is on, reliably and safely, without all the fuss.” And as the app’s lead programmer, George King, told me, “It took me 459 seconds to program this. I want 10 percent.”

Unfortunately, just like the “Yo” App, NO? was initially rejected by Apple, but the team have submitted an appeal against the decision. For all the latest news and updates on their progress, be sure to follow their website http://ontheapp.tumblr.com/.
