Runner-up was the inventor of the "Re-Action" app. This reflex game makes longer breaks like traffic jams or traffic lights pass more quickly. By contrast, the "Twitter Map, Heat of Conversations" app, in third place, utilized the "Twitter" communication platform to disclose events to the driver that are presently going on in his proximity. Additionally, the app navigates him there when requested.

Beyond that, Volkswagen gave prizes for creativity in the categories of Best Idea, Student Award and Best Community App. Along with cash and non-cash prizes, at 14,000 euros in total value, an internship at Volkswagen Group Research at Tokyo, Shanghai, California or Wolfsburg will be conferred as an award. The winners and other applications are published under www.app-my-ride.com
