Sprint Starts 4G App Challenge

It’s easy to see that 4G technology is the future; it’s faster than 3G and therefore desirable, after all.  But not a lot of 4G-specific apps have been created just yet, and Sprint – along with several other organizations – intends to address that issue with a contest.

Sprint, Ars Technica, Reddit, and Wired have combined forces to back the Sprint 4G App Challenge.  Developers are supposed to create entertainment, gaming, multimedia, productivity, and social networking apps in response (submitting their apps anytime between now and November 5th).

Then the top app in each category will win its creator $50,000, an HTC EVO 4G with one year of service, a membership to the Sprint Professional Developer Program, and an invitation to a Wired party.

Apps are supposed to be judged on the basis of creativity, design, functionality, and intuitive navigation, so plan accordingly if you intend to participate.

Otherwise, we’ll simply wish everyone good luck and conclude this article so you can get to work.
