Programming Contest Announced!

Our second NS Basic/App Studio Programming Contest starts today. We’re looking forward to cool entries which take advantage of the capabilities of devices and App Studio.

We have two categories: Web App and App Store. Web Apps are installed from a browser, while App Store apps are distributed through the Apple, Google, BlackBerry or other store. All registered NS Basic users are welcome to participate in the contest. Prizes are $100 USD in each category.

You may enter more than one program. Judging will be by NS Basic’s experts. All judging is arbitrary and final. We will be looking for quality, performance, ease of use, sophistication and overall coolness. Apps can be whatever you like: enterprise, business, commercial, education, games or even something whimsical.

All programs must be written using NS Basic/App Studio. Entries may be commercial, shareware or freeware, and for iPhone, iPad, Android, BlackBerry or multiple platforms. Please indicate with your entry whether we can share your program or screenshots with the public.

The deadline for entries is Monday, April 23, 2012 at 12:00 midnite EST.
