Which app will you send to Hollywood?

Round 4 voting for the Next App Star competition has opened

Happy Easter weekend everyone, fancy winning a free Lumia 920? Of course you do! Which is why you should be following Microsoft's Next App Star competition, where every vote gives you a chance to win one of Nokia's flagship devices. What you may not have realised is that you can vote once every round, so with round 4 voting starting up today you can head over to Facebook and vote for your favourite app in the quarter finals.

With round 4 the prizes for developers get big. The apps that win this round will all be featured on Microsoft's channel 9 show, and the 2 that win the next round will have their developers sent to Microsoft's developer conference with hotel and flights paid for (huge prize!). Round 4 is the quarter finals of this competition for which the end is very much in site, and you can find a full listing of the apps which have made it this far after the break.

We're proud to say that the official WPCentral app is one of the quarter finalists, but our competition this time around is ProShot, a lens app we absolutely love and expect will be the one to knock us out of the running. Of course we would love it if you'd consider Windows Phone Central for your vote, and to those of you that have voted for us so far, thank you so much. We really didn't think we'd get to the quarter finals and it's an honour to be mentioned in the same breath as the other quarter finalists.

If you missed the link above, you can vote right here via Facebook. The contest is decided entirely by public votes, you choose which developers have the chance to go to San Francisco this year, and which will be featured on Channel 9.

Round 4 voting for the Next App Star competition has opened


though I'm a pretty avid weather flow loyalist, major props due for all that you've done with amazing weather! definitely getting my vote.

also, strong competition is always a good thing in my book and I'd like to think amazing weather has made weather flow a better product and likewise in the reverse. keep up the, amazing, work!

Nah Proshot is a brilliant app, very nice interface and some wicked camera controls, if we go out to them I won't be surprised at all :)

If these are the top apps on windows phone then I am sad. Only 1 or 2 have the right to be in this top. I dont see a bright future for wp if microsoft does not start pumping money and get the best devs for wp, just like they did with xbox.

The competition was for any dev to sign up for, but I'd bet that many of the bigger development companies didn't sign up, there were a total of 9000 apps which entered out of the 140,000 in the store

Wow... how am I supposed to choose between Connect Me and Amazing Weather. I bought both AGES AGO. I love them both, and I use them both daily.
Of course, when one of them comes up against WPCentral, that's gonna be a really hard choice too...

Voted for WPcentral but Proshot is still leading, vote guys vote, show your support for wpcentral.

Guys lets spread the word and lets get people to vote for WP central. This app deserves to win. Do this small part for the community and the site that gets us such amazing news.

Hello, I'm Atef Shehata the developer of ConnectMe. Really I'm a big fan of WPCentral app. I use it every day and I have voted for it in all rounds. I wish all the best for Jay and WPCentral. For my app ConnectMe, really I didn't think that ConnectMe will advance to that round, BUT when I think about the seven months of hard work I have spent to develop it, I say YES, it deserves ;)
I have a great honor to compete with all these brilliant developers. Good luck for all apps.
