Each year we host the Evernote Devcup, an open challenge to our developer and designer community to create new apps and services that extend Evernote’s capabilities. This past Friday we announced the Category Winners of Devcup 2013. Together these twelve apps showcase some of the best uses of the Evernote platform and reflect an increasingly talented community of Evernote developers.
This year we saw a record number of compelling submissions. In order to fully recognize the hard efforts of this year’s Devcup participants, we are happy to announce two additional awards today: the People’s Choice Award and the Platform Prize Winners.
The People’s Choice Award
The People’s Choice Award is a Devcup prize chosen by the online community. Throughout the month of July, Devcup apps vied to gain the favor of fans following the competition. This year we watched a heated competition unfold throughout the voting process. Two apps consistently competed for the top spot on the Devcup voting list, often outpacing each other by only one vote.
In order to recognize the impressive efforts in this year’s voting process, we are happy to extend the People’s Choice Award to the top two finalists. Both People’s Choice Award winners will receive passes to our annual conference, EC3.
EleEditor is a feature rich mobile client for Evernote. EleEditor allows users to edit notes, create content, and further enhance their notes with an array of custom templates.
WoWlrd is a multiplatform service designed for image-logging during travel. WoWrld lets users collect photos from various locations, share their experiences with friends, and sync travel content to their Evernote accounts.
The Platform Awards
This year we teamed up with Node and Pebble to promote integrating Evernote with their APIs and other cool new services. Together with developers, we discovered new experiences for users working across multiple platforms. For Devcup 2013, we are awarding special prizes to submissions that integrate effectively between Evernote and these hardware platforms.
Best Node Sensor Integration
Paint Pro integrates seamlessly with the Node Sensor and Evernote. Users simply tag items with their Node Chroma, and Paint Pro identifies the exact color. Match as many colors as you want, and then sync your pallets to the Evernote service. The Paint Pro team will receive complimentary Node Sensors for their efforts in this year’s competition.
Best Pebble Watch Integration
WatchNote is a Pebble and Android app that integrates seamlessly with the Evernote service. Users can access and edit notes via the WatchNote app, and then view content on their Pebble device. WatchNote is the perfect app for quick access to important information and lists.
More Announcements Soon
Congratulations again to all of the winners announced for Devcup 2013. Stay tuned, because on August 16th we will announce the six Devcup finalists. These final teams will be flown to EC3 in San Francisco, where they will pitch their apps to conference attendees and compete for Devcup gold, silver, and bronze. We hope to see many of you here in San Francisco come fall!
