Samsung Electronics has introduced the Samsung Smart App Challenge 2013, a global app competition aimed at finding new apps to utilise Samsung’s communication function.
It is the second time Samsung has hosted the global contest for android developers. A total of 10 entries will be selected as winners, receiving a record total of $800,000 in prize money along with a variety of promotional benefits. Especially in this year, Samsung Venture Investment will review the final winners for financial investment.
The challenge is open to all mobile application developers across the globe. Developers who wish to participate should sign up directly on the App Challenge website and register their apps on Samsung Apps from 20th June to 31st August.
Contest entrants will be one category. “Smart Chord Apps,” which can be used for development of ‘Group Play’ service on GALAXY S4, a panel of judges will decide the winning entries, which will consist of 10 innovative applications which use group management functionality in interesting and experiential ways. The applicants have to use “Samsung Chord SDK” which helps developers create a group with multi-devices in real-time, automatically, requiring no manual processing of devices which join or leave the group.
