Windows Phone Store

Microsoft has announced a partnership with connected car app company Mojio for a new contest that targets Windows Phone developers, with a total of $5,000 to be split among five winning apps.

The contest itself has already begun and app developers have until February 19 to submit their apps in five categories:

  • Green app: Focuses on reducing drivers' carbon footprints.
  • Fleet app: Focuses on managing a fleet of more than one vehicle more effectively.
  • Business app: Focuses on helping a business manage its resources (i.e., people, time, money) more effectively.
  • Gamification app: Focuses on gamifying driving in a safe manner.
  • Wildcard app: An app which has a primary function that does not fit in any of the above categories.

The developers of the winning apps in each category will be named on March 2 and will receive a $1,000 Visa gift card. See the source link for more details.
