JailBreak was created to allow players taking part in the university JailBreak to track and post their progress whilst competing. The student JailBreak involves students trying to get as far away from their university as possible, without spending a penny. The app allowed competitors to track their movements, calulating their total distance traveled. This was visible to other users of the app, which they could post about in the news feed.
The logo was designed to give people that see it an escaping feeling. Shown by the globe breaking out of the box.
The app featured native functionality through the use of cordova plugins. It was developed originally as a web app and packaged up into a native app using Adobe PhoneGap.
