|ALUMNUS MICHAEL HANSEN LAUNCHES APP|
Michael Hansen (Friends’ Graduating Class of 2007) and his classmate, Ryan Orbuch, both juniors at Boulder High School, just launched their first app, Finish for iPhone. Designed mostly for procrastinators, Finish is a task/to do manager aimed at helping people get organized, prioritize, and complete tasks. When grappling with how to keep track of all that’s required of busy high schoolers, these young men saw a need and filled it by creating a tool that would be useful to anyone who juggles too many things at once. The app began selling on the iTunes App Store on January 16. Read more here. Congratulations, Michael!
