More than 1,000 apps were submitted to Nokia Developer’s Asha Developer Competition from nearly 500 developers worldwide, and today the winning apps are revealed.

Developers were encouraged to submit either Java or web apps for use with Asha Touch and Asha 501 devices in any of four categories: Games, Utilities & Productivity, Music & Entertainment, and News & Information. In addition, special prizes were offered for the Best User Experience, Best Web App, and Best New Idea.

For each of these categories, the developer of the winning app will get 25,000 euros, second prize 15,000 euros and 10,000 euros for third prize. For the special prizes, the winners will receive 10,000 euros.

Approximately 65 per cent of the apps submitted were designed for use on the Nokia Asha 501, and the rest for Nokia Asha Touch devices. The submissions were split evenly between web and Java apps. The best part of all, however, is that every app and game submitted was published to the Nokia Store meaning there are plenty of new apps for people who own Nokia Asha devices.
