AppCircus winner in Tallinn

Tallinn has been the third city where we have celebrated an AppCircus event during the same day! So November 21st has been a busy day in our calendars. It is so nice to see the resemblances and the differences in each country of the ecosystem of mobile apps!

The evening was smooth and exciting, and the jury decided to reward the following apps:

QMinder has been selected as the best app amongst the top ten chosen to pitch:

Qminder is the queue elimination system.

A free application for the end users to “take their ticket” remotely. The system leverages the existing hardware such as PC’s, tablets and LCD screens to provide queue management to establishments that couldn’t afford them until now.

And Bear Care has been selected as the runnerup of the event:

Bear Care is an augmented reality action game, in which you have to protect your beloved helpless Teddy Bear.

You can also cuddle your bear to keep him happy. The fun part is that it takes place in a real environment, which is blended with lively and playful 3D bears.

The local organizers did a great job, and this is why we’d like to thank them! Jury members, curious people who came around to check what’s AppCircus about, developers, start-ups… Thank you for being part of the show!
