Don’t forget — the Hot Apps Program opens today.
The Palm Hot Apps Program rewards developers of the hottest webOS applications with a total of $1 million. The developer of the free webOS application that’s downloaded the most between February 1, 2010, and May 31, 2010 will receive $100,000. The developer of the paid-for webOS app that generates the most revenue during the same period will also receive $100,000.
Developers of other top free and paid apps will also receive cash awards, as follows:
- The next 20 apps in each category: $10,000 each
- The next 200 apps in each category: $1,000 each
Only downloads made between 12:00 midnight, February 1, 2010, and 11:59 p.m., May 31, 2010, will be considered for the awards. If you don’t have an app in the catalog today, you have plenty of time to get going and get one published and in contention for the prizes.
If you haven’t programmed in webOS yet, getting started is easy. Download the SDK, check out the tutorial and get yourself going!
