Looking for an app idea? Designers need developers

We often hear from developers that they are looking for the next great app idea. They know how to build apps but just haven’t found the right thing to work on.
So if you can't design your way out of a paper bag but have great development skills, this is for you!

The Windows Phone “App to the Future” Design Challenge organized by Core77 is closing in a few days (Feb 10, 2013), and winners of the best design concepts will be announced in a few weeks.
We expect that many of the finalist designers will need help from developers to get their apps built and published.

Last year’s edition of the challenge gave life to some amazing apps, which you can check out here.


How to team up with an App to the Future designer?
Here’s how to team up with an App to the Future designer to build out a Windows Phone 8 app and have a chance to win a phone (see here for the details):

clip_image003Signing up does not obligate you to partner with a designer, but it could be a great opportunity to form a team. Core77 will provide a generic template that you can use formalize your team.

Good luck!

  • @abm: if you really want to use things like book-controls in an app, you'd better learn objective-c ;) I'm really happy 'bout windowsstore design-guidelines clearly distancing from anachronisms like bobbly-wobbly page turning, wooden backgrounds, etc.

    The day Microsoft let me use this book control wpfbookcontrol.codeplex.com and non-rectangular polygon shapes with Windows.UI.Xaml.UIElement.Clip in Windows Store apps, I surely will publish apps on Windows Store.

    Developers are waiting for YOU to make a move first!
