We are celebrating the launch of the Pebble appstore on Android by announcing the Pebble App Challenge, featuring a $5000 grand prize for the first place app developer(s) and a Pebble Steel for each of the Top 16 finalists.
The Pebble App Challenge starts today. Enter your Pebble application(s) in the challenge now!
Submission period ends on March 23rd, 5pm PST.
Between March 24th and March 27th developers, Pebble users, and the public at large, will vote on their favorite submission on the Pebble App Challenge site. The Top 16 apps will be declared finalists and move on to the final rounds of the competition!
The first week of April, the Top 16 finalists will be paired and compete for votes from Pebble users only. Each app will play one match per day, and only the app with the most votes moves on to compete the next day. Matches will take place on the homepage of the Pebble appstore.
