Thank you to the brave entr-app-preneurs who took to the stage at Battle of the Apps IV on 19th June, 2013. There was a wide range of apps looking to tap into our desire to find good food, network more efficiently, educate our children and simplify the way we pay for things. Read about the eleven contestants here.
My creative team at Inspire Digital Asia designed this great backdrop to set the tone of the evening, a subtle reference to the highly popular HBO show, Game of Thrones.
Each app start-ups had five minutes to present, followed by two minutes of questions. we then opened the vote to our discerning audience of 100 judges who placed their chips or, be more precise, smiley face stickers on their favourite app.
The Bronze Award went to GOnnect: a better way to find, make and keep connections. Download from iTunes. Follow on Twitter (@gonnect) and Facebook.
The Silver Award went to ZNAP, by MPayMe: a new way to simplify payments. Download from iTunes, Google Play or BlackBerry App World. Follow on Facebook and watch on YouTube.
And, the Gold Award went to... Little Rewards: an incentive programme for reluctant children that teaches goal setting and the value of rewards, including money. Download from iTunes. Follow on Twitter (@littlerewards) and Facebook.
Congratulations to the three winners! We hope that the rest of the contestants enjoyed the battle, made some good contacts and that Web Wednesday has helped nudge awareness of your creations up a notch or two. Now go make some money!
