First webinos App Challenge winners announced
On the 22nd of October 2012, webinos presented the winners of the 1st webinos App Challenge and awarded the prizes. The audience had the opportunity to see some great demos of the apps showcasing webinos features including: an easy and fun way to combine several devices to create a virtual tiled multi-screen-display for photos or even google maps, a collaborative cross-device drawing board and two cross-device multi-player games: a Poker and a Word Battle game. The host and the judges represented by BMW, Deutsche Telekom, Samsung, Sony and the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), acknowledged the efforts and energy that the winners had put into developing apps on a rather new platform. The awards event was hosted by Mobile Monday Athens.
The four finalists were:

It was a great night and an excellent wrap up of the webinos 1st App Challenge. It was exciting to see developers outside our project doing some great hands-on development on webinos. Very importantly, it provided us with valuable feedback on issues and improvements that will help bring webinos to the next level. At this point, we want to say a special “thank you” to our friends at Mobile Monday Athens for hosting the awards event!
