WPCentral extends its partnership with Nokia DVLUP to give away more free design consultations for your app!

Join Nokia DVLUP this Thursday, January 30th at 8 AM Pacific for a one-hour online design seminar and learn how to win a free design consultation for your Windows Phone app.

Last year WPCentral and the Nokia DVLUP team gave away several free design consultations for developers who wanted to enhance the visual design quality of their app.

This giveaway was such a success that hundreds of developers applied to get one of the awarded design sessions hosted by Arturo Toledo.  As a result, Nokia extended the program from 10 consultations to 50 and for 2014 we are giving away 30 more coupons!

Would you like to get one of these free consultations? Register now to the ´Lessons Learned´ online seminar on January 30th (8:00 PST | 10:00 CST) where Arturo will share the most common design challenges after reviewing dozens and dozens of apps. You will learn best UX practices and tons of tips and tricks to design better Windows Phone apps. In addition, during this event, Arturo will share how you can win a free design consultation so make sure to be there!

They say 'proof is in the pudding'. Here are some before-and-after samples for your enjoyment:

Developers who received a free design consultation last year were mind blown with the results triggering discussions on Twitter:

“Totally blown away by my design review session with @arturot for rGov Congress. can't wait to implement the design changes #wpdev @dvlup”

“Just finished my @dvlup design consultation with @arturot . It was very helpful and looking to incorporate in my app! Thanks guys!”

“@arturot is an awesome designer. Will be releasing an updated and better looking app soon. Thanks @dvlup and @wpcentral for this :-)”

“Just wow! Wait until you see the changes in Password Padlock! @arturot made some great suggestions in my @dvlup Design Review today. #wpdev”

Developers, take the time and learn to make your app even better looking! The Windows Phone Central audience has spoken over and over again when it comes to their favorite apps: design, design, design. Here's your chance to really make your creation shine, so please take advantage of it!  -the WPCentral team
