RIM held an App Master challenge in South Africa where developers competed for an all-expenses paid trip to San Francisco for the BlackBerry Developer Conference as well as a carousel feature for their app. The winner of the challenge was Joe Diedericks‘ “Salon Queen” app for the PlayBook. The app is a sales, scheduling and customer relationship management app for hair salons. It makes it simple for hair stylists to showcase their work and hairstyle ideas to their clients as well as the hairstyles the salon has done for them before. The app also enables salons to track their clients as well as schedule hair appointments for clients on the spot. Salon Queen is a great example of how a tablet app can be used for small business and it’s solutions like Salon Queen that will help jumpstart the industry. We’ll be able to show off more of Salon Queen when the app is live in App World.
