It’s official: app fever has definitely taken over. Apple’s iPhone continues to expand its bounds, reaching 220,000 total apps on the app store. Android’s App Market is growing at tremendous rates. Blackberry, Symbian, Windows Phone and Palm all have app stores of their own. But it’s Samsung that is really pushing the envelope. The Korean electronics giant not only has a mobile app store, but is expanding this reach onto their TV and Blu Ray devices.
And what better way to promote this than by hosting an app contest? Samsung is doing just that so here’s your chance developers! Some key highlights of the contest:
* Single SDK (you know how we at Mobclix feel about that…we love it!)
* $500,000 in total prizes
* Exposure to key venture capital partners
A host of big names have already made apps, companies like Facebook, ESPN, Hulu, Netflix, Pandora and tons of others! Developers, this is your chance to expand your already awesome apps onto a new platform.
The mobile market is huge and definitely has not reached its potential. But think of all the homes out there with TVs and Blu Ray players. Now that’s market potential. Developers…let’s see what you’re made of! Visit www.freethetvchallenge.com to get started!
