Developers, Start your engines: FOX and APPNATION launch Pimp My App! Developer challenge

This one’s for all the current and aspiring application developers out there. As part of the APPNATION “Show Me the Money” Conference, FOX and APPNATION have partnered up to launch the first ever Pimp My App! developer challenge. The challenge is more focused in nature than say the Android Developer Challenge put on by google; developers must focus their creative efforts on either FOX’s popular TV show Fringe, or a visitor’s guide to San Francisco. You are not limited to one contest or the other though, developers can enter both contests to try to get their hands on both prizes.

So what are the prizes you ask? Submitting the winning Fringe app will net you a cool $10,000, while the visitor’s guide to San Francisco app will give you $2,500. That’s a total potential of $12,500 if you decide to enter (and win) both kinds of apps. Of course, both winners will see their app developed into the official application for Android, which is cool in its own right.

Both the rules of entry and the entry forms themselves can be found at the Pimp My App contest page. If you’re thinking about entering this challenge, HURRY UP, as all entries must be received by September 3rd.

So fire up your recently unlocked Google App Inventor and get going!
