PayPal BattleHack Istanbul this past April was a major success, bringing together talented hackers competing to create an app that would benefit the community. Piggy Bank took the crown and will represent Istanbul at the finals in San Jose this November. An app for parents and their children, Piggy Bank helps control children’s spending while supporting a healthy, active lifestyle using PayPal “student” accounts and iBeacon technologies.
The first runner-up of BattleHack Istanbul were Fitpal, a fitness app that motivates you to do a 7-minute workout everyday. Following close was WouldPay, an app that lets you set prices that you would be willing to pay on online items, and then sends you notifications when or if the price ever drops to your set amount. You can check out more information on the winners here.

We can’t wait to see who’s going to make it out to the finals in San Jose, California!
