LDS 14-year-old invents top iPhone app

You know the drill. Somebody LDS (or reputedly LDS) does something bad, and the world is told in banner headlines, "Mormon Does Something Bad." We rarely get credit when one of our people does something good.

Well, here's something bucking that trend.

ABC News reports that 14-year-old Robert Nay of Spanish Fork, Utah, invented Bubble Ball, a free iPhone app that is now the number one downloaded game, surpassing Angry Birds. His technical resources? A book out of the Spanish Fork Public Library. Young Robert plans to go to BYU, and given that and his hometown, it's a pretty sure bet that he is LDS.


  1. Way to go Robert! I'm a displaced Spanish Forker and Mormon. It's always good to hear of great things coming out of the (not so little now) town where I grew up.

  2. Thank you for commenting, Jack! And rock on, Spanish Fork.

  3. I was is 6th grade with him! He is the coolest person you will ever meet!
