From now until June 30th, 2013, we are running a competition aimed at developers who have built PhoneGap apps and published in other stores – for example, Apple iTunes, Google Play, Blackberry World, Bada, Symbian, or Palm OS – to take any of their existing PhoneGap apps and port it to Windows Phone 8, like the Untappd app recently ported to Windows Phone 8.
Members of a panel selected from Microsoft, the Adobe PhoneGap team, and industry experts will choose 20 winners, based on apps that are:
- Easy to use
- Engaging and visually appealing to the user
The panel will pick 3 grand prize winners who each will receive a Windows Phone 8 and a Surface Pro, and 17 first prize winners who each will receive a Windows Phone 8. All winning apps will be evaluated for featured slots in the Windows Phone Store.
