Today the U.S. Department of the Treasury, together with partners the D2D Fund and the Center for Financial Services Innovation, kicked off the MyMoneyAppUp Challenge to solicit ideas from the public for mobile applications to help Americans shape their financial futures everyday—even while on the move

The Challenge features two components: an IdeaBank to generate ideas for mobile applications, and an App Design Challenge that solicits more comprehensive mobile app designs for development.
