Yesterday Bryce (my business partner) and I launched "Candy Jar Estimator" on the Android Market. It's designed to help you win candy guessing competitions - it takes your candy, the jar type, any custom jar measurements, and computes the expected number of candies in the jar. Basically it means automatic WIN if you use it the next time a candy estimating competition rolls around at work, church, holiday festivities, etc. so... it's pretty awesome.
Anyway we've also entered our app in the BYU mobile app competition. The competition runs through November 16 and there are several prizes that we could potentially take home, including $6000 grand prize, $3000 judge's prize, and a local company's choice: brand new iPads for all team members. If you'd like to help our team out here a few things you could do.
- If you have an Android phone, download the app (yes it costs a dollar), l eave a 5 star rating and a SUPER AWESOME comment.
- Tell your Android friends to download it and leave some awesome reviews for us. Say "my brother is entering his android app into BUY's mobile app competition. check...it...OUT! http://bit.ly/tmlitR" (and then make sure they download it and not just look at it)
- Even if you don't have an Android, you can help us by +1-ing our app on the Android Market. go here (http://bit.ly/tmlitR) and click the +1 button on the top right of the screen.
The biggest help will probably be sharing, so if you want to tweet it, Facebook it, or blog it that would be very helpful. Also - if you have friends that are big blogger's a little spotlight from their blog goes a LONG way.
