Request an Android app review, win a free Motorola Droid

Thanks to Google’s device seeding program, we have received an extra Motorola Droid. Google has been generous in providing us with some free phones and we want to keep that charity going. In coordination with our Android app review contest, we will be giving away one free Motorola Droid (and this time it doesn’t require you own an Android phone).

Who can play?

This contest is open to anyone (minus our team). I already have the phone in hand and I’m willing to ship it anywhere in the world. Keep in mind this phone is for use on Verizon’s network in the United States. The Droid comes with 30 days of free Verizon service.

How to enter

  • Leave a comment and request an app or game review (no adult content please)
  • Please only one request per person (multiple entries will disqualify you)
  • Provide an email when leaving a comment so we can contact the winner (in the email field, not the actual comment)
  • Search the comments to avoid duplicate app entries

The winner will be randomly selected from the comments and be announced on Monday, May 3, 2010.

Where do I find Android apps?

There are many online listings of the Android Market. Check out our Top 3 sites for discovering Android apps or visit any of the sites below.

Anything else?

Help us decide which apps you want reviewed the most by using our comment voting system. Vote up the apps you want to see and bury any bogus entries. The comment system is about to get an upgrade and we need to collect some good voting data.
