We’re back and ready to go further than the mobile!
Keeping up with trends in mobile development, MoMoAth will be diving into the cross-screen development vertical. Mobiles, tablets, Screens, TVs…you name it, we’ll have it! Our next event is planned for the 22nd of October. We will be announcing speakers and venue quite soon but meanwhile we have an international competition for you with a huge interest from many developers. It’s the ‘webinos rewards creative cross-screen apps‘ competition and if you want to enter, win one of the cool prizes and get known outside your country, don’t hesitate to take part. After our last mHealth competition which opened up the doors to international competitor participation with a final winner from France, we’re happy to see more international competitions taking place right here in Athens!
So here’s the announcement from webinos, along with details on entering the competition. The final show will go down, here, in Athens on the 22/10/2012 with an outstanding judging panel from Samsung, BMW, Sony Mobile, W3C, Deutsche Telekom. Quite a challenge and we’re looking forward to seeing some state of the art applications taking part.
webinos rewards creative cross-screen apps
Berlin, August 22, 2012 – Cool apps and cool prizes: the European research project webinos is holding a competition for cross-device applications. The best proposals will proceed to the finals in Athens.
Using a smart phone to zap through the television channels or using a tablet PC to configure the car system – the webinos technology allows for cross-screen services, i.e. web apps that can be used by devices to jointly access media, data, and functions safely. With the new developer platform, the international webinos project offers free access to the necessary tools. Particularly creative apps will now be rewarded: the webinos consortium is holding a developer competition. The best entries will have the chance to receive great publicity, meet the webinos partners & win “cross-screen prizes”: from Android-on-a-USB-stick to state-of-the-art smart phones and tablets.
Event with international experts
A webinos jury of domain experts will select up to ten best ideas and the announcement of the finalists is scheduled for October 8th. The finalists will get the chance to present their apps in the next Mobile Monday Athens “Cross-screen apps” themed event which is scheduled for October 22nd. The winners will be voted by the audience. The precondition for participating to the competition is that the apps are using the webinos platform and APIs and integrate functionality of more than one devices – i.e. that the apps are cross-screen.
