ADC Best in Apps Returns to GDC Next 2014 to Reward Most Innovative Emerging Mobile Apps

AppCircus and UBM Tech Game Network will host an international community of developers to demonstrate the latest app creations at the second edition of ADC Best in Apps powered by AppCircus at Game Developers Conference Next (GDC Next) on November 3rd and 4th. The first day will be open to all categories, showcasing future and top trending apps, and the second day will be dedicated to games.

During the event, 20 entrepreneurial developers will have the opportunity to pitch their app live on stage in front of a jury of top experts. The winning apps will receive a nomination to the Mobile Premier Awards 2015, the largest cross-platform app showcase in the mobile industry, and a point of reference for the startup and app community during the Mobile World Congress.

2013’s edition received more than 300 attendees and 12 finalists from 10 different countries. All four ADC AppCircus winners were selected to pitch at the Mobile Premier Awards last February, and two of them received top prizes: Fetch (Best App Award), an app that keeps users updated with the newest apps based on their personal preferences, and Social Diabetes (Big Impact Award), a real time self-management app system for people with diabetes.

All app developers are encouraged to enter their app for free at the ADC Best in Apps submission page. The submission deadline is October 15th!
