App developers: Show us what you’ve got for VentureBeat’s Mobile App Spotlight Devindra Hardawar Tags: Android , apps , iOS , iPhone You’ve got mobile apps, and we want to feature them. VentureBeat has partnered with Intel for our Mobile App Spotlight , a place where we can showcase cool and innovative apps. The first Mobile App Spotlight winner was Didiom , a slick app that lets you listen to your music library on your phone from your computer. Next, we chose The Cartographer , a gorgeous app for managing custom and offline Google Maps. Both developers reported that being featured in our App Spotlight helped to surge downloads. The free and paid versions of Didiom saw a 370 percent and 67 percent increase respectively in downloads during the week following our feature. Similarly, downloads of The Cartographer spiked when it was featured. Your app could be next! Here’s how it works: If you have a new app, submit it for consideration to the Mobile App Spotlight . VentureBeat’s editors will pick three apps to profile over the coming months, and they’ll be highlighted on VentureBeat’s homepage. (Note: To qualify as new — at least to our audience — the app must not have previously been written about in VentureBeat. If this program isn’t a fit, you can still keep us in the loop with your news — we’re glad to hear from you. ) Apps written for any major smartphone platform are welcome. If you already submitted an entry last month, there’s no need to resubmit unless you’ve made some major changes to your app. We’ve seen some exciting entries so far, but we’re always looking to be blown away by cool new apps. Submit your app today ! The Intel AppUp developer program is sponsoring VentureBeat’s Mobile App Spotlight. However, VentureBeat’s editorial staff selects apps for the program according to its customary editorial standards, without input from Intel.
