Palm App Contest Sets Big Prizes

Depending on their age, Palm is about to help a couple of developers either retire or at least move a little closer to 30+ years of doing nothing.  The Palm Hot Apps Program has set out to reward the developers of two extremely popular apps with $100,000 each.

Palm’s decided to look at what apps are downloaded most between February 1st and May 31st.  The people behind the most-downloaded free app and highest-earning paid app will then receive those relatively large sums of money.

There isn’t just the one-in-a-million chance of hitting it big, though.  The next 20 apps in each category will win their developers an impressive $10,000 each, and then the next 200 apps should net their developers a still-nice $1,000 each.

Good luck to all DevWebPro readers who are in the running.  If you win one of the top prizes, think well of the rest of us when you’re sleeping in until 11 AM and playing golf for the remainder of the day.
