An app that re­ports car­jack­ings, one that can help ar­chi­tects de­sign cost-ef­fec­tive build­ings, an app for sell­ing in­sur­ance or one that turns your cell­phone into a printer – these are just some of the ideas read­ers have come up with.

Sa­muel wants to de­sign an app called Jacked, which, us­ing GPS, will pro­vide other mo­torists with your lo­ca­tion, as well as a de­scrip­tion and photo of your ve­hi­cle.

“Once your ve­hi­cle is stolen or hi­jacked, there is a but­ton that sends an alert for mo­torists to be on the look­out us­ing the pic­ture pro­vided. It will also pro­vide your last known where­abouts. There is an­other but­ton that can be used to alert au­thor­i­ties that you need med­i­cal as­sis­tance,” he sug­gests.

Abra­ham wants to de­sign an app that al­lows cell­phones to be­come mo­bile print­ers.

“What about a ca­ble – like your charger ca­ble – that you can plug into your phone and then you can plug the USB part of the ca­ble into a printer?’ he sug­gests.
