In the Summer of 2014, Salesforce Labs kicked off a really exciting challenge for our employees, build an amazing app within the Salesforce1 Mobile App to share on the AppExchange, for free, for our customers, users, and developers. The goal of this contest was to create even more ways to use Salesforce on your mobile device, and to add new and relevant apps to our Labs listings. We had talented developers, administrators, engineers, and business users from across salesforce departments and geographies participate and build projects.
The grand prize went to Jonathan Rico and Luis Campos-Guajardo from our headquarters in San Francisco for building Almond, a native learning management app for Salesforce1. You can see Almond in action below. Almond didn’t just win the contest grand prize, this app has been so useful for customers that there is already a Success Community Chatter group with 70 members who are using Almond!
