The other exciting news for developers is that Samsung have also launched their Global Developer Challenge 2012. The challenge aims to motivate and reward the developers of innovative, creative, functional and original apps for the Samsung GALAXY Tab and GALAXY Note.
There is $4.08million worth of cash prizes to be won, as well as giving developers who are short-listed major marketing support for their app. The ‘Top 60 Samsung Apps’ will be chosen based on those that receive the highest downloads, whilst the ‘Best of the Best 20 Apps’ S Pen functionality will be chosen by a panel of judges. Entries can be submitted to the Samsung app store between May 7 and September 30th 2012 and downloads during this period will be counted; with winners being announced on October 31st 2012.
Developers who wish to enter for the challenge need to be members of the Samsung Apps Seller Office before beginning to sell their app on Samsung Apps. For full details about the challenge and how to enter, visit the Samsung Smart App Challenge 2012 website.
