|DDH Software announces new Mobile Database design contest
Company offers the chance to turn ideas into commercially viable mobile applications
Wellington, FL (April 30, 2008)…DDH Software is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its acclaimed HanDBase mobile database application. To mark the occasion, the company announces it is reviving its "HanDBase Applet of the Year" contest, seeking the most innovative uses for its popular HanDBase mobile database program for PDAs and smartphones.
The goal for this year’s contest is to demonstrate how easy it is for anyone to develop a mobile solution for either work or personal use. The company will reward the Best Commercial Applet and Best Personal Applet with "HanDBase Runtime" licenses (a US $1000.00 value) which will enable the winners to turn their entries into commercially-available standalone mobile applications.
DDH Software’s website, www.ddhsoftware.com, currently offers the largest online gallery of free custom applets for mobile devices, including Access (Palm) OS, Windows Mobile, BlackBerry and Symbian handsets. More than 2,000 HanDBase applets are currently available in DDH Software’s gallery, including solutions for a variety of industries, professions and personal uses. Examples include diet managers, travel expense logs and report generators, personal finance managers, and dictionaries for medical terms and pharmaceuticals.
No purchase of HanDBase is required to enter the contest. A free, full-featured 30-day trial version is available at the company’s Web site. Contestants can use this demo copy to create their entry, and can create as many custom applets as they would like in order to improve their odds of winning the grand prize.
“We’re excited about this year’s contest, especially with the recent release of HanDBase 4.0 offering more features for creative users to incorporate into their entries,” said David Haupert, DDH Software’s president and CEO. “Through this contest, we hope to demonstrate how easy it is for anyone to create any kind of mobile information management tool. Which HanDBase applet will rise to the top this year and could potentially become a commercially successful mobile application? We’re anxious to find out!”
Submissions are due before June 30th, 2008, and the winners will be announced on July 31st, 2008.
