Winner of AppCircus in Ljubljana

Wednesday, December 14th, 2011

This time MobileMonday Slovenia was colored by AppCircus colors. We were happy to have AppCircus show in Ljubljana, and already exiting about next year!

Ten great apps started with their 3 minutes presentations and demos. There were 2 teams from Croatia, and 8 from Slovenia. Some of them really impressed with great creative presentations bring lots of questions and reactions from jury and audience. After all teams presented their apps, the jury had a quite hard work to decide… But finally they declared a winner, the Monkey Labour team!

Meet the AppCircus in Ljubljana winner, Mobot the Robot!

Mobot the robot is expected to mindlessly labor at his job deep inside the bowels of a corporate production facility while his monkey boss vents frustration by throwing obstacles Mobot’s way. Help Mobot stick it back to the system while avoiding being replaced by a cheaper model in this deliciously retro 80s style electronic handheld game rehash.

We need to mentions also Spotie app from Croatia and Wazzap app from Slovenia, they took 2nd and 3rd place.

And a huge “thank you” to all the jury members that became part of the best showcase of apps, and the local organizers team!:

Tina Tavčar - Designer for  Innovatif

Gregor Rebolj – Mobile developer at KLIKA

Ivan Brezak Brkan – Startup expert at Netokracija

Winner of AppCircus in Moscow

Friday, December 9th, 2011

We have another winner! AppCircus in Moscow was inspiring and dynamic, we hope to come back very soon!

AppCircus became a part of Mobile Developer Day Russia and the final part of its daily agenda. Mobile Developer Day Russia is a day in December when most of mobile developers gather in Moscow, discuss and share their experience. This year the event was represented by all major studios, companies and vendors.

CoinKeeper is the latest app with a nomination to pitch at the Mobile Premier Awards 2012 in Barcelona! Check this great app:

CoinKeeper helps managing personal finances like hundreds of other apps but makes it innovative and different. It’s visual and clear – all budgets (income & expenses) and current accounts are located on one screen, organized in beautiful trays. It’s easy to use and fun in the area which is the most boring for users – adding new transactions.

The second place (and definitely people’s choice) went to Baby DJ:

A group of authors with more than 20 years of experience in DJ-ing has created a unique application for DJ’s as young as 1 year old. Now every kid can easily become a king or queen of the dance floor all being made possible by this incredible application!

Thank you organizers, audience and all the developers who joined the best showcase of apps! It was the perfect excuse to bring together the regional mobile app ecosystem!
