AdDuplex has kicked off the next month in the Every Phone They Make campaign, which will be rewarding developers with a chance to win a Lumia 625 and Lumia 820 for simply marketing their apps with AdDuplex. It's a great program for those who have apps submitted to the stores to win some awesome prizes. What's more is for the month of May, AdDuplex is also giving away a Lumia 1020 to the general public.
To be in with a chance to pocket a Lumia 1020, all that's required is to comment on the AdDuplex articles with your top 5 "indie" (no first party developed apps, ie. Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft, Nokia, etc.) Windows and Windows Phone apps you simply cannot live without. This not only provides some recognition for developers, but also alerts you to apps on the stores you may not have previously been aware of.
The reasoning behind indie developers and apps being included is to raise awareness of the wide variety of quality apps available in the two catalogues. Note: only comments over on the AdDuplex website will count as entries for the Lumia 1020. That said, feel free to share your favourite apps in the comments below.
