SOUTH BEND -- Notre Dame hopes some of its students will come up with the next popular smartphone app.

The university just announced the winners of a contest that encouraged teams to design and test software that might someday end up on your iPhone or Android.

Taylor Seale and Ryan Shea, both juniors, won a $3,500 first-place prize for their app, Map Pics, which displays on a map all of the images taken in a certain area. It would be most helpful during big events, like football games, where there are a lot of people sharing pictures on Facebook and Twitter, the students said.
