Now we’re really closing in on the launch of App Idol, our competition in which we encourage anybody with an idea for an app to submit their idea in written form to be in with a chance of winning:
- $1,000 prize money
- Leading development company Locassa will develop the app
- Feedback and mentoring from four successful app entrepreneurs on the panel of judges
- Marketing for the app on iPhoneAppCafe.com and our partner sites including the social reach of over 100,000 followers of our high profile judges
- The winner will be featured on iPhoneLife.com and circulated to their 100,000 newsletter subscribers
A panel of successful app entrepreneurs will review the finalists’ submissions. We have four high profile judges on the panel, which we will be announcing in the lead up to the event.
We have our third judge confirmed and he is…drum roll please…Simon Lee, CEO of Locassa app development agency!
Simon has a wealth of development and management experience in both mobile and internet technologies, having worked for two of the UK’s largest ISP’s. Simon founded Locassa in 2009 and has worked on some of the biggest iPhone and iPad projects around including The Times and The Sun for iPad, the Lucozade iPhone app, work for Universal Music and CMC Markets to name but a few. Locassa will develop the winning app idea in App Idol.
We’ll reveal the final judge very soon; in the meantime, get your thinking caps on and come up with the app idea that’s going to blow the others out of the water!
