Microsoft’s new operating system for mobile devices, Windows 8, was launched just a few months ago. But that’s exactly the kind of new challenges which stimulate our developerse! That’s why a team of Emakina’s mobile experts participated in Microsoft’s Superhackathon competition.
The Superhackathon brought hundreds of young and bright developers who worked simultaneously in four different locations across the country. Their goal was one: create the best Windows 8 app! Unfortunately, only one team can go home with the first prize. Fortunately, it was us…! First, our team won the first place in Mons. Then came the real big news: First place at the national finals went to Emakina’s Fit beast.
Fit Beast is a unique app for fitbit users in the Belgian market. It offers a highly convenient dashboard for users to monitor and plan their physical activity. But there’s more! The app presents special social features for friends to compete and compare their results. The jury was highly impressed, not only by our team’s compliance with Microsoft’s guidelines, but also with the app’s potential to advance public health .
