ADC1 Results: $100 000 for Piggyback

August 29, 2008 – 9:38 am

Well, that’s it, the cat is officialy out of the bag. We are among the top 20 winners of the first Android Developer Challenge. We are of course very happy to be able to push Piggyback even further.

There are quite a few great applications in this top 20, which everyone will be able to download when the Android Marketplace is open.

Our feeling on the results is that the top 10 applications were not necessarily the most advanced or useful, but rather those that were “ready to ship” and with an appealing and catchy UI. In this respect, we can’t say Google hadn’t warned us. Many great applications didn’t make it in the top 20 so keep an eye for those on the Android Marketplace.

That’s it for now, but we hope you’ll be hearing a lot more from us soon: a video of our application is being prepared, so stay tuned.
