The Winner of AppStretch Contest Announced


More than two months ago AppStretch launched “Funding and an ultimate developer laptop for your ideas” contest. And now it is time to announce the winner.

From all the developers that verified the ownership of their apps and games on AppStretch until 1st of July we randomly picked one lucky winner. So congratulations go to Moath Othman who chose to get a MacBook Pro! Your prize is on the way. Hope it will help you create more cool apps and games!

And a reminder to all other devs who verified their apps until 1st of June – your first crowdfunding campaign on AppStretch will be commission free. Maybe it’s time to launch one?

Moath added his puzzle game PuzzPic on AppStretch. You can get it from the App Store and share some feature requests on AppStretch if you feel that you miss any. Moreover, you might get a chance to win great prize too.

To encourage app and game users to share their feature ideas for any app or game, AppStretch launched “App Feature Wish List” publication on Medium and is giving away iPhone 6S, Samsung Galaxy S7 or Lumia 950. Check it out and add your story!

Good luck!

App Feature Wish List

The idea of AppStretch is to help developers collect feature requests from their true app and game fans and enable them to support the realization of the features the users want through crowdfunding and crowdpromotion.

To encourages app and game users (and developers) to share their favorite app feature ideas, AppStretch launched a publication on Medium “App Feature Wish List”. This publication is a set of articles published by actual app users, explaining why the particular app or game is cool and what features, in their opinion,  would make it even better.

Moreover, everyone who publish their article to “App Feature Wish List” publication until August 31st, 2016, will get a chance to win Microsoft Lumia 950, iPhone 6S or Samsung Galaxy S7!

Is there any app features that you miss? Share your story — tell your ideas and help the developers realize it.

The main information that your story should include to participate the sweepstakes is:

  1. What do you like about the particular app and how do you use it on your daily bases?
  2. What features do you miss and why do you think it would make the app even more effective and useful?
  3. Share your feature requests on AppStretch and link it in the story.

More information about the “App Feature Wish List” publication and official contest rules are here.
