Do you look at magazine and other content apps out there and think “I could do better”?
If so, now’s your chance. Mag+ is excited to announce its first ever Unleash the Content; Build Your Dream App contest—a chance for iOS developers to reinvent the future of touchscreen content and build the publishing app of your dreams.
What is the Mag+ SDK?
Since the day the iPad was launched, we have offered a standard, brandable Mag+ reader app for Mag+ clients to display and distribute their content. The Mag+ SDK allows iOS developers to build their own reader app using our libs. That means you can re-imagine the interface, the navigation, the store or library or build in entirely new functions. You can even open the MIB format, modify the XML, and then modify the reader to take advantage of your changes.
The Contest Format:
Interested iOS developers can register for the contest here . Once registered, you’ll receive a link to download the SDK on February 8 at 8 a.m. EST. We’ll also supply sample MIB files so you don’t have to create original content. If you do want to create your own content, you can download the Mag+ tools for free and design your own MIBs using InDesign, or you can pair up with a designer to create the content. The contest will be open for two weeks, and you will submit your finished apps here. A panel of judges will pick the most innovative apps and award awesome prizes. We’ll also feature all the builds on our Web site.
– First prize: $2,500 cash and a six-month commerical license for the SDK, a $21,000 value.
– Second prize: $1,000 cash and an iPad Mini
– Third prize: an iPad Mini
