John Quinn thinks reading news on a tablet would be more enjoyable and engaging if it were more like a computer game.
A game where the user earns points and wins rewards for rating news articles, sharing content and commenting on stories.
He calls his creation NewsQuest, an application for iPads that allows users to do all those things.
On Tuesday, Quinn -- a University of Notre Dame junior -- won first place in the apps category of the Notre Dame-Schurz Awards for Innovation. He was presented with a check for $3,500 for his concept.
