BlackBerry has asked its users for their application ideas. If an app is chosen to be developed the person who’s idea it was will win a BlackBerry 10 smartphone. Moreover, their idea will result in an app within eight weeks of being submitted.
The BlackBerry Dream App Factory campaign is being held in Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.
Users have two weeks to submit their dream application idea online at https://www.facebook.com/BlackBerryIndia/app_505367272852523?ref=ts. All ideas submitted by July 14, 2013 will then be exhibited on the https://www.facebook.com/BlackBerryIndia/app_505367272852523?ref=ts site for public vote.
During this phase the public will have the opportunity to determine what would make for the very best BlackBerry experience by choosing the application idea that they have yet to see on a mobile platform. Participating countries include Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.
The top three ideas will then be narrowed to one application idea by a panel of judges within BlackBerry. Ideas will be selected based on the local country’s need. The idea that has been nominated by the judges for each country will be passed to a pre-identified local developer. The developers from each of the participating countries in the BlackBerry Dream App Factory will then have eight weeks to complete the applications and ensure that they are built for BlackBerry.
BlackBerry fans will also have the opportunity to track the progress of application development by visiting https://www.facebook.com/BlackBerryIndia/app_505367272852523?ref=ts.
BlackBerry and Microsoft are trying their best to get more apps developed for their respective platforms, as applications have become the key to success in the smartphone race. The two companies have been luring developers with better money and also through contests. And now BlackBerry is trying to shore up user interest in app development.
