We are proud to announce the winners of our PDK Hot Apps Promotion. Check out the complete list here.
This program was a lot of fun, and really raised the bar on the type and quality of apps we offer our Palm Pre and Pixi users. For all those who participated, we hope that in the course of this promotion, you’ve enjoyed the benefits of being a webOS developer and access to our enthusiastic user-base.
An exciting upside for us about the promotion was all the great feedback from developers who said they were porting their apps with the webOS PDK quickly – in some cases two to three days! PDK Hot App winner, Phil Hassey (Galcon, Cosmic Nitro), wrote a blog journaling his three-day port of Galcon to webOS. We also recently featured Hot Apps winner 10tons Ltd., who grabbed top spots for Sparkle and Azkend.
We could go on because there are so many cool winning apps, but for now we’ll wrap with the paid and free $100,000 winners. Stay tuned, though, because we plan to feature more fantastic Hot Apps in the coming months!
Congratulations to all our winners!
Winner, Paid Apps – Angry Birds
Angry Birds by Rovio entered the promotion about half way through with a reputation that preceded it – as one of the most popular games worldwide on iPhone/iPad and now webOS. This game provides hours of fun as users find ways to hurl Angry Birds towards unique castle formations housing a band of menacing green pigs.
Winner, Free Apps – Glow Hockey FREE
Glow Hockey FREE from indie game developer Natenai Ariyatrakool was a real Cinderella story. This classic air hockey game with fun retro Tron-ish visuals was a sleeper hit that took the top spot over some very popular free apps.
