Asmi Jain Developed App Help Users Strengthen Their Eye Muscles

Apple has announced three first-time winners of its Swift Student Challenge. A 20-year-old Indian has been included in the list. Asmi Jain, who resides in Madhya Pradesh Indore, created an app that helps users to strengthen their eye muscles.

The story starts with her friend’s uncle who had to undergo brain surgery after which he suffered from eye misalignment and facial paralysis. This inspired Asmi to create something that helps her uncle in making his eyes strong. She developed an app in which a user’s eye has to keep track of a ball that is constantly moving. This makes the eye muscles more active and strong.

Asmi wishes that this app helps more and more users in improving their eye conditions. She plans to improve the app with the given feedback and release it soon on the Apple App Store.

Asmi is currently studying at a university in Indore where she and her group of friends created a forum to support her system for working through tough coding problems.

Apple invited Asmi and other winners Marta Michelle Caliendo and Yemi Agesin for the WWDC 2023. It is currently unknown whether Asmi will attend Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference physically or virtually.
