Watch out for Dalton Ng, James Lim, Axios Yeo, Ravern Koh, Sean Lim, Shannen Rajoo and Yee Jia Chen. The teens are among the up-and-coming mobile app developers in Singapore.

The youngest among them - Shannen, Jia Chen and Axios - are just 14 years old but they have already developed applications that are available on the Apple App Store. Not a small feat, considering that Apple rejects 40 per cent of more than 100,000 submissions each week.
