GREEN FOREST, Ark. -- There are hundreds of thousands of mobile apps to choose from. One app in particular has an interesting local tie.
Nick Luebbering, Conner Glassell, Jayce Martin, Colin Stimson, and Lexi Diaz have only just become friends at Green Forest Middle School.
"We basically all met each other here in the East Lab. That's how I met Jayce, Colin, and Conner," Lexi said.
What brought them together is a little unusual for their age.
They created an iPhone app. What it does is in the name--Computer Troubleshooting.
None of them have any experience creating apps. They used a program through Apple called Xcode.
"I looked at Xcode. I just sat down one day and started looking through it to see what it took," said Luebbering.
There were a few bumps along the way.
"We're still going through and polishing it," Glassell said.
Soon it was available for purchase.
"We posted it all over social networks to get the word out. And we were getting 200 clicks every time we refreshed the page. So that was pretty exciting," Martin said.
Computer Troubleshooting, or Computer TS for short, costs a mere 99 cents. So far they've sold about 100.
While most of the sales come from the United States, you might be surprised at other countries that are buying the app. According to Nick, the United Kingdom, India, France, Australia, China, Canada, Saudi Arabia, The Philippines, Italy, and 34 Sales in "other countries."
"We were actually pretty surprised, that someone was actually focusing on our app," Diaz said.
"A lot of things in life take collaboration. That's what they've learned what to do," said Green Forest Middle School Principal Rebecca Brasel. "I'm so proud of them. I like to brag to them wherever I go."
They aren't done yet. The group has another app in the works. They are also looking at creating some educational apps as well.
While their current app only runs on iPhones, they hope to launch a Windows Phone version and an Android version this spring
