Make $75 on Your App Makeover

This past spring, my colleagues and I spent a lot of time on college campuses introducing students to the Windows 8 platform and teaching them how to build casual games with Construct 2 as well as apps with both C#/XAML and HTML5/JavaScript. If you’re a student who published an app between July 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013, now’s your chance to create a new, updated app based on your existing one – and perhaps get an extra $75 (or more) for your efforts.

Windows 8 App Makeover Challenge

The Windows 8 App Makeover Challenge runs through January 1, 2014, and the rules are straightforward:

  1. Be a US resident (at least 18 years old) and a student in an accredited US educational institution,
  2. Have published a Windows 8 application between July 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013,
  3. Update your application per the criteria in the Terms and Conditions of the challenge,
  4. Submit your modified app as a NEW application to the Windows Store,
  5. Once your “make-over” app has been approved, visit and submit the online entry form.

There’s no limit to the number of applications you can make over, but only the first 1500 apps that meet the criteria will be eligible for the $75 Amazon Gift Cards.
