MOBILE APPS SHOWDOWN
LVCC, North Hall
Competition: January 8, 2015, Room N255
The Mobile Apps Showdown is a fast-paced contest where contestants submit new apps. Both the audience and a panel of live judges are asked to weigh in on the apps based on “most likely to succedd” criteria. For the months leading up to 2015 CES, we’ll be presenting the contestants to you. You can try the apps, watch demos, make your feelings known, and ultimately vote on a winner. We’re platform agnostic, so if it’s mobile, it’s in the competition.
The top ten apps will join us at 2014 CES for an action packed event hosted by Jon Hein and Gary Dell’Abate from the Howard Stern Wrap Up Show.
Robin Raskin, creator of the Mobile Apps Showdown, will be there to emcee events.
By the end of this year, nearly 50 billion apps will have been downloaded. Only you know which ones are the keepers.
