Samsung Smart App Challenge 2012
Here at XDA-Developers, development isn’t just something we do, its what we do. Samsung recognizes this, and would like for us to draw your attention to the Smart App Developer Challenge 2012, which will be helping sponsor XDA TV for the next couple of months.
The challenge is looking for app developers to create new and innovative applications for the Samsung Galaxy Tab and the Galaxy Note and upload them to Samsung Apps. Samsung will then award 80 lucky winners with a combined $4.08 million. The contest is split up into two categories Super Apps and S Pen Apps, with 60 and 20 winners respectively. The S Pen category is looking for apps that are built using the S Pen SDK, and the Super Apps category is further split into game and non-game apps, each with 30 winners. In other words, the top 20 S Pen Apps, top 30 Games, and top 30 Non-Game Apps will be selected as winners.
The contest is accepting application entries from now until September 30, and winners will be selected based on sheer download numbers during that time period. It is thus in your best interest to enter as soon as possible in order to rack up as many downloads as you can. Winners will be announced on October 31, and will be broken down as follows:
