The Box Mobile Dev Challenge has come to a close, and we'd like to thank everyone who participated. It was a huge success, with entries coming in from developers all over the world. The entries tackled a wide range of problems, from improving project management to simplifying interviews and making meetings run more smoothly.
Of course, we know what you’re waiting to hear – who won? Without further ado, here are our winners:
Grand Prize - Bizmo
Bizmo is the first accounting, time, and billing suite for the iPad and iPhone.
The Box integration in Bizmo allows users to associate any item in Bizmo with a folder on Box. For example, Bizmo allows you to maintain a catalog of the products and services your company provides, and you can keep an info sheet for each item associated with its record in Bizmo. Box’s sharing capabilities are built into Bizmo, so those info sheets can be sent straight to customers from the app.
Bizmo wowed us with a deep integration that takes advantage of most of the features of Box in extremely useful ways. Commenting, tagging, and collaboration are all integrated into the app to make sure your content is not only accessible, but also easy to share with colleagues, partners, and clients. Great job, Bizmo team!
Second Prize – TouchDraw
TouchDraw is a vector drawing application for the iPad. Its features make it extremely powerful, and its integration with Box gives it exceptional collaborative functionality. Many features that are accessible from the Box interface are available directly from TouchDraw, like sharing files, editing permissions, and adding tags and comments.
If you use Box and need a professional quality drawing app, you simply can’t do better than TouchDraw.
We’d also like to congratulate the rest of the top 10, each of whom will be receiving a Motorola Atrix and Lapdoc courtesy of the fine folks at AT&T. They are:
