Announcing the HTML5 is Ready App Contest

Together, we can destroy any lingering doubts that HTML5 is not ready, and prove that 2013 will be the year of the HTML5 app. We got the party started with the announcement of our Fastbook proof of concept app, and all the ensuing hoopla. Now it is your turn. We’re thrilled to announce our HTML5 is Ready App Contest!

The contest is simple: start with one of the six categories (based on default native apps found on most devices), get coding with HTML5 and Sencha, and take the basic native functionality above and beyond, to somewhere amazing that shows the app dev power of HTML5. We’re looking for the coolest, most innovative and elegant apps, and we’re giving away over $20k in cash and devices as prizes.

Check out the contest details page, the official rules, and then let the coding begin!
