Congratulations to the winners of the Lumia Geek Challenge! The Challenge, sponsored by Nokia and WindowsPhoneGeek.com, was open to all developers worldwide who submitted either new or updated Windows Phone 7.5 or Windows Phone 8 apps to the Window Phone Store between 13 November 2012 and 8 January 2013. Three overall winners were named, as was one Technology Showcase winner and one People’s Choice award.
Prizes won by the winners include all-expenses-paid trips to Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2013 in Barcelona, app demos at the WIPJam at MWC in Barcelona, customized Nokia Lumia phones and accessories, credit on the Nokia Ad Exchange, and free one-year subscriptions to the Nokia Premium Developer Program.
This is a great app for all of us TV show addicts, combining different online sources about the most popular TV shows. The sleek UI, resizable Live Tiles, lock screen notifications and the media player integration won us over.
We really like how this innovative app pushes the boundaries of NFC technology.
This app really takes the next step in bringing our calendars front and center to our Windows Phone 8 homescreen and lockscreens – the way we prefer.
Technology Showcase: TouchMountain
The jury was impressed by the number of different technologies integrated into a simple to use, intuitive user experience, and the novel take on augmented reality.
People’s Choice: Photo Signer
With 1,900 supporters, this app was undoubtedly the favourite of the voters.
