Globe unveils search for innovative mobile applications

Globe Telecom recently launched MobApp Hunt 2011, a program for Filipino developers to showcase their creativity in building mobile applications for Android, BlackBerry and iPhone devices. The program aims to recognize and reward local talent in building innovative mobile applications that build on top of network services like mobile broadband, short messaging, voice and location based services

MobApp Hunt 2011 is being spearheaded by Globe Labs – created in 2008 to expose the company and its partners to emerging technology and innovations as well as identify and develop unique applications that can be commercially introduced in the fixed and wireless consumer market. It aims to usher in the latest information and communication technologies at the earliest market-relevant time to consumers.

“Through MobApp Hunt 2011, we are creating a venue to develop and commercialize the ingenuous creations of our mobile developers, as well as provide them tools to hone their talents further,” said Blue de Venecia, Head of Globe Labs. “Globe Labs has always been at the forefront of extending support to Filipino innovations especially in the field of information and communications technology. With MobApp Hunt 2011, we will continue to engage our mobile developers by giving them opportunities to showcase their innovations both here and abroad.”

MobApp Hunt 2011 is open to all individuals and companies registered with the Globe Labs Developer Community. Registration can be done online via the Globe Labs Developer Portal at where proposal forms can be downloaded. Participants can be individuals or teams, where teams can have a maximum number of 5 members. Submission of proposals is slated until May 23, 2011.

Announcement of accepted proposals will be on June 6, 2011. Successful developers will have six weeks to create their applications. Participants will also get the chance to attend various trainings, and technical and user interface workshops to help them improve and enhance their creations.

Successful developers will get the chance to have their apps published on myGlobe Free Apps or iTunes (for iOS apps) and receive Php50,000 as reward for each app published.

MobApp Hunt was successfully introduced to the developer community last year with the primary goal of tapping the skills and talents of Filipino developers in the different mobile platforms such as Android, BlackBerry, iOS, MIDP2.0 and Symbian/QT.
