52 Apps in 52 Weeks

There's no money in it-for now. Churning out new Facebook applications is merely Joshua Schwarz's idea of fun.

It was the Case Western Reserve University freshman's drive to develop popular and useful apps that prompted him to make an ambitious New Year's resolution: He pledged to develop one new Facebook app every week in 2011.

Popping out an app a week won't allow him to develop the next Farmville or Mafia Wars, but he's hoping it will inspire an app he'll later want to revisit to develop more fully-and profitably.

"I've got ideas running around my mind, and I just pull one out each week," he says. "It's something I'm constantly thinking about."
