In partnership with the AT&T Developer Program, the Power Your Future mobile application contest is open to software developers with an application created in iOS, Android or for any of AT&T’s HTML5 compatible phones. Designed to find innovative applications that deliver an environmental or energy efficient benefit, the contest will engage customers and the public to vote on eight finalists. Winning applications could potentially be preloaded on future AT&T smartphones.
Starting today, developers can enter up to five apps by visiting http://att.promo.eprize.com/app. Apps may be submitted until Sept. 28 with voting beginning Oct. 11. More than just checking a digital vote, customers will also have the opportunity to provide specific feedback about why they voted for an application.
The winner of the contest will be honored at the 2012 AT&T Developer Summit in Las Vegas in January and will receive airfare and lodging.
