Teenage entrepreneur develops free revision app

An enterprising London teenager has developed his own free revision app after spotting a gap in the market.

Jonny Boone, a 17-year-old pupil at University College School in Hampstead, had always found revision “a long and tedious process”.

“It was easy to get distracted and I needed a whole suitcase of books just for the revision,” he said.

So he hit on the idea of creating a fun, high-quality app to help pupils across the country revise for their biology, chemistry and physics GCSEs. With the help of his family he found an app agency to help with the technical side. Jonny then led the project, working on it during his evenings, weekends and school holidays.

The app, Temple GCSE, can be used across the AQA, Edexcel and OCR exam boards and enables users to build a temple as they revise and complete mini-tests. It already has more than 1,500 users and this is likely to increase as the exam season gets into its stride.
