BlackBerry Partners Fund announce more finalists in Developer Challenge

Comments

The BlackBerry Partners Fund have announced the next four finalists in the 2009 BlackBerry Developer Challenge.

The next four finalists are:

  • David by Turner Technologies
  • Sid Meier’s Pirates by Concrete Software Inc
  • CBS News by Handmark
  • Market Simplified by Market Simplified Inc.

This brings the total finalists to 8. The previous four finalists were:

  • Fierce Towers by Nickel Buddy
  • Astraware Solitare by Handmark
  • Expense Manager by Total Wireless Solutions
  • Vision for YouTube by Metova

So far, of the 8 finalists, 3 are games. This is interesting considering games make up a small percentage of total BlackBerry content sales. Finalists were selected by a panel of judges based on the following criteria: compelling product or service; clearly defined value proposition, and; technical execution. Personally, I would like to see more utilities in the finalists. These apps are constantly improving the functionality of the device and need more recognition.

My next four choices are:

  • gwabbit
  • vPost (their latest version includes screenshot functionality and a scribble feature)
  • LaterDude Pro
  • Poynt (with their new features, are they eligible to reapply?)

Who would you nominate for the Developer Challenge?
