Application developers for Vodafone Park take away half a million

10. March 2010

An expert panel along with the wider public selected the winners of ‘best application and best application idea’ for the Vodafone park server, out of a total of 30 developers. Vodafone Park is a unique server open to third parties, that connects mobile phone with the internet and allows sending free SMS notifications from the portal to a mobile phone. Vodafone will give the winning developers a total of CZK 510,000. “We were very pleasantly surprised that the majority of the developers used in their applications the unique functionality that the portal offers, namely the SMS notifications from the portal to the handset. We plan to stay in contact with most of the developers and give them professional marketing advice so they attract the broadest possible audience with their applications,” says říká Rudolf Krejcar, Senior Manager for Consumer Marketing and also a member of the expert panel.
