The survey on developer.nokia.com is now closed and we have drawn the winners for the three Lumia 920s. The winners have been contacted by email, so please check the email you registered with in order to see if you are a winner, especially if you happen to live in Vietnam, Guatamala, or Mexico!
Thanks to all that have participated.
We’ve been having a lot of fun lately—we launched the Nokia Premium Developer Program for Lumia back in October, and it proved to be our most successful developer program ever. Our rewards program, DVLUP, has also proven extremely popular with developers, and we recently expanded it to include developers in the UK.
So we decided it was time to bring some “Premium goodness” to Asha development. Today we are excited to introduce the Nokia Premium Developer Program for Asha.
The Nokia Developer team enjoys encouraging young developers. After all, they’re the future of software development, and having been raised with computing devices all around them, they often have bold and interesting ideas.
Health Pack Games, a publisher of mobile games, has been using Nokia Ad Exchange (NAX) to cross-promote its apps, and monitor its global downloads and in-app advertising results, and they like what they see. The game publisher has seen higher click-through rates, higher conversion rates, and substantial revenue improvements.
Canada-based Health Pack Games offers mobile games, including Monster Stack 2 and Chicken Story 2. Both games run on multiple platforms, including Windows Phone 7-based Nokia Lumia smartphones.
