Every year, we coach you to not only build your app, but to help you bring it to market too. All apps must be available for free – this levels the playing field, and encourages more downloads from the App Store. Everything will be in your name – you’re the app developer after all – we’ll count up the downloads and award prizes – it’s as simple as that. 

 

The AppCamp finalists’ apps are submitted to the App Store following each camp for approval – and in a matter of weeks they’ll be available to download for free! We’re delighted with the quality of each app, and we think you will be too! Why don’t you download them all when they’re available and give us some feedback?

 

 

The competition really is wide open in 2016! Game on.
