A still from the video about the DubCreds app

DubCred, an app to rate and review Dublin City’s amenities and that also rewards users, has netted its creator Barry McAdam first prize in the Open Innovation – Better Cities competition.

The winners, announced last night, entered the competition by submitting videos on how to make our cities more more socially and economically sustainable through the use of open data and information technology.

McAdam, a user experience design lecturer with Digital Skills Academy, won a first-prize package consisting of a Dell Inspiron laptop and two tickets to the Open Innovation 2.0 gala dinner held last night.

His DubCred app is aimed at engaging both Dublin City Council and the city’s citizens to shape the future of Dublin amenities.

Citizens use the app to rate and review the city’s amenities, while earning rewards would provide Dublin City Council with data to evaluate amenities’ use across the city and help target budgets where it matters.
