The 48 Hour App-a-thon challenges any smartphone or tablet user to develop, publish, and share a mobile app for the opportunity to win $50,000
Boston, MA (PRWEB) April 23, 2015
Appsbar, the easy-to-use app building platform, will launch its 48 Hour App-a-thon Challenge at the 2015 edition of Yardfest, Harvard University’s annual spring concert.
The event takes place on April 24, 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Harvard’s Tercentenary Theatre. This year’s concert features pop star Jessie J.
Launched in 2011, Appsbar opened up the mobile marketing category for small and medium-size businesses by allowing them to develop and distribute mobile apps for free using the dynamic app building template at appsbar.com.
The service has since proven to be a boon for all users that were previously locked out of the mobile space because of budget constraints and lack of technical ability. Independent artists, local mom-and-pop stores, and even parents looking to consolidate soccer schedules have all benefitted from Appsbar’s app building tool.
The 48 Hour App-a-thon challenges any smartphone or tablet user to develop, publish, and share a mobile app for the opportunity to win $50,000. The customizable apps are developed with Appsbar’s free and easy-to-use app builder and allow the user to upload, photos, videos, and daily schedules for a personalized app that can be shared with anyone.
The 48 Hour App-a-thon winners will be determined by activations, with the largest number of activations being eligible for weekly prizes and the grand prize. The contest runs through Dec. 31, 2015.
Appsbar’s user-base has grown internationally to over a half million subscribers making it one of the most popular app building platforms in the world. In 2013, Appsbar added mobile capabilities to its offerings, allowing users to create, edit, and publish phones directly from a smartphone or tablet.
The addition of a mobile version signals another innovation by the Deerfield Beach, FL firm which earlier in 2013 was awarded a patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office for mobile application development systems.
