Winner of AppCircus in Ljubljana

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.
