While this is a video produced by Apple, it's not really about Apple. What it does highlight, and does good job at it, is the ingenuinity of of the human race. Our collective potential to solve problems, adapt, and reach out to others in need of assistance / support.

I don't know if Apple supports these programs exclusively, and that's why they were chosen, nor is that implied anywhere. However, it would be of greater significance if these apps were developed and maintained for all mobile platforms - android, bb, windows. It is the app that helps make the difference, not necessarily just the hardware or it's brand. And there are many players in the field of phones and tablets.

Skyscape was original developed for Palm/Windows Mobile. It's now available for iOS/BB/Android.

Excellent video imo. Really showcases how technology can help enrich and aid people's daily life. In many instances these are technology that really do change people's life for the better. This reminds me of the video they showed at the iPhone 5 event. Really awesome. Thanks for sharing, Ally!

The "Making a Difference" video was created for this week's WWDC conference. It was originally posted to Apple's site on Monday.

The first segment highlights my company, Skyscape, and a non-profit we helped launch, Health eVillages. As you can imagine, it's very gratifying to have Apple recognize the efforts of our company & others in such an emotional video.

Apple has been doing this for three years now, starting in 2011 with the "iPad: Year One" video and last year with the same title, "Making a Difference. One App at a Time." In both cases the video was shown during the keynote, but apparently this year there wasn't enough time.

Excellent video.

However, the key message in the video can be easily adapted for Android devices.

The Apple video said "Each iOS app offers remarkable — and often delightful — possibilities. But the most powerful iOS apps ever are ones that change people’s lives in ways they never imagined."

Google can also say "Each Android app offers remarkable — and often delightful — possibilities. But the most powerful Android apps ever are ones that change people’s lives in ways they never imagined."

Similar/Same Android apps are:

1a. Skyscape (from the video)

1b. Healthcare (in general)

2. Prosthetics (related apps)

3. Cherokee language related apps

4. Proloquo2Go similar Andriod Apps

In any case, the existence of Android apps and iOS apps do give users of either platform a run for their money.

Great work, Apple & Google!
