Is your app awesome but undiscovered? If so, the BlackBerry Developer Challenge could be your ticket to digital tech fame. Nearly $1.5 million in prizes are up for grabs for the developer who can create the next great BlackBerry Super App, one that creates a personalized, must-have user experience.
The best part is that prizes are geared toward helping winners build success and recognition for their product. This includes marketing and promotional programs, featured placement on BlackBerry App World, and developer services from leading industry partners.

Now that your ears have perked up, here are the details: Your Super App will be judged on six characteristics, including the ability to run in the background, integrate with native BlackBerry apps, provide useful notifications and alerts, and more. You can enter if your app fits into one of the following seven categories: Productivity, Fun & Games, Knowledge, Sharing, Navigate & Explore, Multi-Media, or In The Know.
If you’re sure you have a Super App in your possession, entering the contest is the easy part. Either click here, fill out a registration form, or if you’re accepted into App World during the submission period, you’ll receive an invitation to apply. Make sure you enter by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on September 6, 2010.
Additional details about the Super App Challenge, as well as the official rules, can be found on the BlackBerry Super App website.
