This contest is fabulous, it inspires creativity and encourages developers to create some really cool, innovative and useful applications. Now this time there are going to be four categories in which developers can submit applications- Eco/Being Green, Entertainment, Productivity and Life Improvement.

On the other hand, Productivity category challenges developers to create mobile applications that can make consumer’s daily lives easier. And the last category Life Improvement requires mobile applications which can make an impact in the field of education, health or agriculture. Developers can choose which category suits them the best and accordingly submit the application. the last date for submissions is 18 May 2010. So hurry up.
