This app is developed by one of students under Marine and Fishery Faculty, Udayana University. Before joining The NextDev 2018 Talent Scouting, local government of Badung regency has indeed shown its high interest as the app won the 2017 Innovation Festival. No surprise here, as the app, developed by I Gede Merta Yoga Pratama, does bear highly potential significant social impact to increase fishermen’s living standards. What it does is to pinpoint or detect fish-location and tell the fishermen where to spread their nets.

3. DietBuddy

Diet is nothing sort of an easy job, especially when it is done individually. And for this reason alone, Alvin Hartanto, comes up with excellent idea to develop DietBuddy. The app simply wants to be a diet’s BFF for anyone willing to start their own dieting program. One can also take the app as their own personal ‘security guard’ that will help them monitor and close-watch their eating habits in order to successfully achieve their own goals.
