Venetasoft wins Microsoft's Appload contest, offers apps for free in celebration

Microsoft recently held a Windows Phone developers contest in Italy, "Appload and Win", where developers were challenged to create an app and upload it to the Marketplace for a chance at €20,100 in prizes.

Venetasoft walked away with first prize of €3500 for their Windows Phone app Security Toolkit. It's a rather neat Windows Phone app that turns your Windows Phone into a security station with alarms and audio/video recorders. You can even turn your Windows Phone into a security camera by streaming videos to your PC using the companion desktop app.

In celebration of winning the Appload and Win contest, Venetasoft is sharing the joy. All of their apps (that you can find here (opens in new tab)) will be offered for free for one week. This includes the Security Toolkit, Intrusion Alarm, TurboCameraWebCam Viewer and more.

Venetasoft has just thrown the switch to offer the apps for free. The changes should be seen on the Marketplace within the next 48 hours.

Thanks, Lorenzin, for the tip!
