Microsoft launches app design contest for Windows Phone 7; no skill required!
Ever have a great idea for a program that no one else has thought of, yet are hampered by the fact you have ZERO programming skills and no graphic talent? Then boy does Microsoft has a contest for you.
In an attempt to further lure interest in Windows Phone 7, Microsoft is holding a contest whereby you submit your verbal design for a dream application that doesn't yet exist. The community then votes on it and the winner's creations will be turned into a free app by professionals and dumped in the WP7 Marketplace for all to use.
You'll be a legend!
Oh and the winner gets $5,000 and a free Windows Phone 7 device.
So take those old bar napkins with your hopes and dreams scribbled in boozy ink and submit right over here. As an example, you can check out Todd Portz's creation right here (yeah, he gets a free plug since he tipped us off to this contest).
Anyways, this a great idea from Microsoft. Lets see what you folks have lurking in your geeky heads...
