Our Mobile Developer Challenge is in full swing, and we’ve had a great response! I’ve been able to get a sneak peek at the submissions and no surprise, our community is wicked smart and there are some awesome entries! Along with those entries, we’ve also had several requests for just a …bit… more… time. Because mobile development is so important, we wanted to give the extra time to those of you needing it. We’ve extended the deadline for contest submissions until Monday, June 10th – a week more for you to wrap up your app and complete your submission.

We hear time and again from customers that they want mobile apps to use in their business. Mobile apps make it easy to connect with customers and employees, allow businesses to easily gather feedback and information, and take orders. Mobile devices are so commonplace today most of us have at least two; they are changing the way we work, socialize, travel, and even grocery shop. This opens up a huge new opportunity for developers; yet the market hasn’t yet reached full potential. With the new Salesforce Mobile Services you can easily build that mobile app you’ve been thinking of. What company wouldn’t love to see what you developed that would help them¬†succeed?

And what developer wouldn’t love taking home a cash prize? $16,000 in prizes is up for grabs in this contest, with a grand prize of $10,000 going to the first place winner!¬†For full contest details and submission requirements, please visit the contest page. As a reminder, the contest is open to individuals and companies in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada (minus Quebec), India, or Japan.

You asked for more time to finish your apps, and so we’re answering – but only with a week extra! Don’t delay on getting your submission in! Let’s see those mobile apps, and good luck!!

    While I’m sure this will help bring in some more good entries to the competition, it’s not ideal for those (like me and my fellow developer in team womenforce) who’ve been working non-stop day and night to meet the original deadline. I hate to ask but will there be some weightage provided to those who respect and adhere to the original deadline – if so, I’ll work through the weekend and submit or else I’ll just use the extra time to polish my app a bit more and submit next week.

      We will be judging each entry fair and square but happy to give extra goodies for those who submit by the original deadline.
