Nine-year-old writes iPhone app - hit by 4,000 downloads

Nine-year-old Lim Ding Wen from Singapore is completely different from most of the children of his age. This young prodigy who had ample command over six programming languages according to a BBC Report developed an finger painting program, known as called Doodle Kids, which racked up 4000 downloads from Apple's iTunes store in less than 2 weeks.

His latest application, Doodle Kids which received a three-and-a-half star rating on the App Store allows users to draw pictures by using their fingers and clear the screen by shaking the iPhone. Its really Just cool !!. Isn't it.

Lim, who first started using a PC when he was two-years-old, has since completed more than 20 programming projects as quoted in the BBC website.

"I wrote the program for my younger sisters, who like to draw," said Lim. "But I am happy that people like it."

Lim, who always enjoys reading books on programming, is in a process of creating another iPhone application called "Invader Wars". Lets wish him Good Luck !.
