Research In Motion has announced they’ve kicked off an “App of the Week” contest.  Beginning each Monday at 3:00PM GMT you will have six (6) days to create and submit your app. The criteria for such app will be set each week.

To get started, register as a participating developer or development group and keep an eye on the weekly challenge. If you like it simply apply for the current week and start coding.

Here’s a look at “App of the Week” contest schedule:

Week #1

  • Cascades App
  • Using the share functionality
  • Integrating video streaming

Week #2

  • WebWorks App (HTML5) or PhoneGap
  • BlackBerry 10 look and feel (BlackBerry 10 JQM or bbUI.js)
  • Invoke the camera

Your peers will be able to vote based on the description and screenshots you provide. Quick recap:

1. Go to and register your developer profile at any time and link it to your BlackBerry® AppWorld vendor profile (if you have one)
2. Check on Monday after 3PM what we have chosen as ‘App of the Week ‘ challenge. If you like it, simply log in and apply for it.
3. You now have until the following Sunday to create and upload your application. Don’t forget to upload 3 screenshots as well.
