Announcing the first Sencha Touch App Contest. This is a great opportunity for you to showcase your mobile app development talent, and possibly win some amazing cash and prizes.

For the second stage, the Top 10 finalists will refine their application for final submission on Wednesday, November 10th. The top three winners will be presented at Sencha Conference (http://www.sencha.com/conference/), November 17th. In addition to winning great cash and prizes, the three winners will also have an opportunity to demonstrate their new Sencha Touch application to our conference attendees.

I don't have to register my app until the morning of Oct 27th, right?
Won't put it online until the end anyway.

Jay, maybe we actually see us at the conf after all. Will try my best to get into the top 3. :-)

Cool contest! We'd like to try as well :)

Question here - should this run correctly on ANY sencha touch device or ONE device will be OK? Say we target our app for HTC Desire or Apple iPad?

You don't have to have it run on every device (although making it run on every device is a plus when it comes to judging)
