    In phase II, MyGov will partner with Google, which will hold a competition for teams to submit their mock-ups and designs for the app based on the blueprint.

    "The wire-frame development phase (Phase 2) of PMO Mobile App Contest is a critical phase in its development. It is in this phase that the most important components of a successful app - navigation ease, user interface and user friendliness, visual and pictorial appeal as well as innovation in design - would be outlined by the competing teams," said MyGov CEO Gaurav Dwivedi.

    After phase 2, the winners will get an opportunity to code the actual app, Google said.

    "This will be the first time in the world that citizens will not only design but also make a mobile app for the PMO. It is a great opportunity for developers and students to show their expertise and skill and built an official app for the PMO," said Rajan Anandan, vice president and managing director, Google India and South-East Asia.
