In June we hosted a competition that asked developers – how well their app converges across devices?

We were looking out for apps that beautifully converged across Phone, Tablet and Desktop using our SDK AdaptivePageLayout component.

The numbers are in and we’ve selected our winners! Thank you to all who participated in making their apps look even more slick.

So….drum roll! The winning entries are below with some feedback as to why we chose each.
