Winner Spotlight on BlackBerry: Gbanga.

On the inaugural event of AppCircus Spotlight we had the pleasure of displaying BlackBerry applications at the Mobile World Congress 2011, this made for some interesting applications that submitted for the chance to be on stage at the world’s most important industry event. More than 20 applications applied to pitch, but only 10 where handpicked by BlackBerry engineers.

The audience saw the different mobile applications do their demos, with 2 minutes of pitching per app and 1 minute to talk about how their app would use the BlackBerry Playbook when the show was coming to an end, the mobile community chose:

Gbanga is the Winner of AppCircus Spotlight on BlackBerry.

The apps that did not win on this first edition of AppCircus Spotlight on BlackBerry should get a mention for being on stage and making the effort. There would not be a showcase without them. In no particular order these are the rest of the mobile applications:

The show must go on for 2011! So we are just beginning to get in full swing, so if you missed the chance to be part of AppCircus at Lagos, you can have a look and see a list of confirmed events from around the globe.
