Developers can now participate and win a FREE Google Nexus 4 by participating and winning in Canonical’s Ubuntu App Showdown contest.
“Contestants will have six weeks to build and publish their apps using the new Ubuntu SDK and Ubuntu Touch platform. Both original apps and ported apps, native and HTML 5, will qualify for this competition.
The winners of this contest will each receive an LG Nexus 4 phone running Ubuntu Touch with their application pre-installed. Furthermore, each of the winners will have an opportunity to have their app included in the default Ubuntu install images for phones and tablets.
The main problem that any new operating system faces is the lack of new applications. Canonical is trying to prevent this issue by encouraging the community to build as many apps as possible, with the promise of the great prize, of course.
All valid entries will also become available for install on Ubuntu Touch devices from the Apps lens in the Dash, using the new Click packages and MyApps submission process.
Even if an app doesn’t win the great prize, the user will still have the satisfaction of having an application installed by default in Ubuntu Touch.
