It’s back… First 5 With 5–2013 Edition



Due to the incredible response I had in December with my First 5 with 5 app promotion, I am bringing it back!!!

I am celebrating the New Year by giving the first 5 Canadian Windows Phone Developers that write and submit 5 apps to the Marketplace in 2013 a brand new shiny Lumia 800!!!


This sleek, sexy phone can be yours, all you have to do is create 5 Quality Windows Phone Apps and put them in the Marketplace!

There are a few rules:

  1. You must be a Canadian resident, living in  writing Windows Phone apps
  2. The app must be submitted after January 1st, 2013 to the Marketplace.
  3. The app must be a QUALITY app… What does that mean?  It means:
    1. Must pass Marketplace Certification,
    2. No Hello World or Picture Catalogue / Resizer Apps.
    3. No more than 1 of the 5 can be an RSS Reader
    4. No multiple variants on a theme (travel/tourism, etc.)
    5. The app must have a useful function.
  4. All Apps will be assessed by me and my decisions regarding validity in this promotion are final.
  5. This promotion is being held by me, without any express written or implied consent or participation from any third party.
  6. By submitting your apps to me for evaluation, you agree to hold me not responsible for any promotion, remuneration or other, expectations whether implied or inferred.  I am doing this to help developers, not looking for any problems.
  7. The winners will be chosen by me based on:
    1. App quality / usability
    2. Order of CERTIFICATION
      (it is the first 5 developers to build and publish 5 apps after all).

How to Submit an App:
