Announcing the third Ubuntu app showdown contest!

Today we announce the launch of our third Ubuntu App Showdown contest! We are excited to bring you yet another engaging developer competition, where the Ubuntu app developer community brings innovative and interesting new apps for Ubuntu on mobile devices.

Contestants will have six weeks to build and publish their apps using the new Ubuntu SDK and Ubuntu platform starting today. Both original apps and ported apps, QML and HTML5, and apps specifically for the Chinese market will qualify for this competition.

We have taken a step further with this App Showdown, we have four dedicated categories that you can enter:

  1. QML: original apps written in QML or with a combination of QML and JavaScript/C++
  2. HTML5: original apps written using web technologies, be it pure HTML (and CSS/JavaScript) or with platform access using Apache Cordova
  3. Ported: apps ported from another platform, regardless of the technology used
  4. Chinese apps: apps in this category will have to be original and specific to China and the Chinese culture. They will be judged by two native experts in our jury.

Prizes are up for grabs, each category (QML, HTML5, ported) will win a Nexus 7 pre-loaded with Ubuntu. The top two Chinese app winners will receive a Meizu branded device.

Find out more details and to enter the competition. Good luck and get developing! We look forward to seeing your apps on Ubuntu.
