According to Fortune magazine, Anvitha Vijay, a 9-year-old prodigy has already developed a handful of apps for Apple’s iPhone and iPad.

A genius is not born but made and the Australia-based Indian-origin girl Anvitha Vijay is certainly a perfect example of this dictum. She had made several apps for Apple’s iPhone and iPad products. She has developed iOS apps, which includes prototyping, user interface design and then coding and testing.  

For her knowledge and contributions to the apps’ world, she is considered Mecca of apps. The young programmer said, “Turning an idea for an app involves a lot of hard work as there are so many components to building an app, including prototyping, design and wire framing, user interface design, and coding and testing”.

The journey for this young girl was not easy, but she knew her caliber and potential which made this Indian-origin young girl to develop apps. Two years ago, she was facing a ‘cash crunch’ with just $130 in her piggy bank, when she decided to build a mobile app. She also spent a year watching free tutorials on YouTube and Internet to learn how to programme.

Fortune says the little genius, who has inventions on her tips, is already working on her next app, which will help children her own age to set goals. Recently the Indian-origin girl was also the youngest participant of Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in the San Francisco Bay Area.
