(NECN: Marnie MacLean) - Most teenagers certainly know how to download an app, but not many can say they can create one. Julian Wyzykowski, 16 of Cape Elizabeth, Maine, developed his first app for Apple when he was just 12-years-old.

Now, he has eight in the App Store. His most successful app happens to be the most simple- homage to the famous Saturday Night Live cowbell skit.  You tap the cowbell in time with the music.

He's also created a game called Gear and an app called W8 that is for those five to ten minutes we all occasionally have to fill. W8 brings together news and entertainment stories in one easy to read place.

Wyzykowski says he knew from a young age he loved playing video games, but also wanted to understand how they were made. He taught himself how to write code and build graphics.

His games are getting great reviews and now he's hoping to figure out how to stand out in a store with a million other products. His eventual goal is to own his own gaming company, once he finishes high school.
