CEO of the tech giant firm Apple, Tim Cook congratulates the 9-year-old Indian girl for developing an iOS app for the iPhones. Her full name is Hana Muhammad Rafeeq, and she currently lives in Dubai.
Furthermore, she claimed to be the youngest iOS developer in her first letter to Cook. Adding to it further she claimed that she has created an app named “Hanas” which is nothing but a storytelling app.
This app facilitates the parents to record stories on their iPhones. The Apple CEO apparently given her compliments in his email reply to her after she has described her achievements in the software field along with other fields in the email.
Talking about the app that Hana has made it contains kid-friendly tales in it which includes short stories, bedtime stories, moral as well as classical stories. The inspiration for her to develop this kind of app was that she realised how few parents have the time to read to their children. Hanna was only 8-years old when the app was developed.
In an email, Hana claimed that she was first introduced to coding when she was five years old, making her youngest person in the history to do so. Another notable thing about this app is that it is made up of 10,000 lines of code.
Also, her app does not contain any pre-made third party libraries, classes or codes. Also, in reply Tim Cook sent her email to congratulate her astonishing achievements at such a young age. He also said that if she persisted, she would eventually do great things.
Hana further adds that 10,000 lines of code was necessary to build the storytelling app, which will enable parents to record stories in their own voices for their kids.
