Earlier this year Adobe and Sony teamed up to offer developers a challenge. Build the best apps using Adobe Air and customize the app to make it work on the new Sony Tablets for a chance to win a cash prize plus special promotion on their new upcoming product line. It sounded like a great opportunity to us.
If you haven't seen the new Sony Tablet P it's a unique newcomer in the tablet space. It is a dual-screen, folding Android tablet with a screen on top and on the bottom. This split screen is what made this challenge unique. You simply cannot put your app not he device and expect it to look good. Instead we created a custom interface for the Sony P that would take advantage of the top and bottom screen configuration while maintaining the general look and feel of the other apps that we offer.
Sony and Adobe took hundreds of submissions from developers all around the word. The judging was done based on 5 main categories including: Business & Productivity, Games, Entertainment, Lifestyle & community, and Most Innovative. There were also two special categories, one for Grand Prize, and another for MAX Public Favorite. Apps were judged based on quality and performance on Sony Tablet S and Sony Tablet P, innovation and creativity, and overall user experience.
There were so many great apps submitted to the challenge. We feel fortunate that Conqu has risen to the challenge and came out on top, being awarded the "Best Business & Productivity App".
We would like to thank Adobe & Sony for the opportunity to show that Conqu is a top notch application. We would also like to congratulate all the other category winners for a job well done
Named one the best Android apps by Gizmodo, Conqu recently appeared in the the Brazilian edition of Gizmodo along with the words "Probably the most beautiful tasks app for Android that exists." We like to think this is true, and we are glad that Gizmodo Brazil thinks so too.
The piece by Gizmodo Brazil is short, but had plenty of nice things to say about Conqu. We are happy that people find Conqu useful and enjoyable to use.
If you can read Portuguese you can read the entire article on Gizmodo Brazil. For our english speaking fans here is the Google Translation of the article.
Conqu was recently selected as one of ten finalists in the Air App Challenge sponsored by Sony. It's quite an honor just being selected, however we would really like to win the Public Favorite Award. We would like to ask that everyone help spread the word about our nomination and of course vote for Conqu between October 1st - October 4th
What would we do with $10,000 if we won? We would put it right back into Conqu making it the best task management app available on all the major platforms.
You could win a 1 year ConquSync subscription
If you think Conqu is a great app and deserving of such an award, then tweet something with the tag #ConquMAX and let people know that you think Conqu deserves the Public Favorite award. Just for doing so, you will be entered for a chance to win a free 1 year subscription to ConquSync!
