If you have some creative and innovative app idea that you are raring to bring to life, this is the time to do it on Palm OS and get a chance to win a million dollars. Palm’s App Catalog has brought this compelling way to get developers to make winning apps.
Palm’s Hot Apps Program is set up to reward the developer, or developers, of the most downloaded applications available in the Catalog. The Palm Hot Apps Program will reward developers of the hottest webOS applications with a total of $1 million! The top rewards of $100,000 will go to developers as follows:
- The developer of the free webOS application that’s downloaded will receive $100,000.
- The developer of the paid-for webOS app that generates the most revenue will also receive $100,000.
The good news doesn’t end there. Developers of other top free and paid apps can also receive cash awards. If you’re a developer of other top paid or free apps, the next 20 in each category will win $10,000 each. Beyond that, if you’re the developer of the next 200 in the categories, you’ll win $1,000.
Palm has also launched a new microsite called Palm Hot Apps. This is a leader board for their Hot Apps promotion. Since this is a competition Palm will constantly update site that shows who’s winning right now and who might be winning in the future.
If you are interested in mobile app development in general or just a Palm enthusiast, you’ll definitely want to check out the site. The competition is still wide open. If you want to build something cool and compete and are not a developer, don’t loose heart, Apps Factories like Zen Age Studios can bring your ideas to reality for you.
