On Sunday 30th September 2012 ended the first phase of the contest. A sign up of new applications ended but authors can still work on them. Now, it starts the competition for you, the readers. Your task is to create a review of application/s.

Information for programmers

Applications can continue to be developed and adapted. Making authors some larger application upgrade, they should inform us by e-mail. It should be noted if a half of the application is changed two hours before the deadline, nobody can do a new review.



How to write a review

Ideal application test is to run it and later to evaluate it. To avoid having to compile application, we have prepared for you all the source code and installation packages in the Dropbox. It may be additional information available there, too. Without having a supported phone you can use simulator at QtCreator or the Remote Device Access.
