Tap to Print: Android App Challenge
|Richard Harris in Android Thursday, June 22, 2017|
Mobile printing company, Mopria, wants to reward developers for using their in-app mobile printing tool.
Android developers, want a reward for boosting your app(s)? Mopria is awarding devs who give their app the useful function of mobile printing.
The ability to print is a great tool for your app; it can increase your user retention, spike in-app purchases, and enhance your usability.
Take part in the Tap to Print Challenge and get a guaranteed prize for submitting!
The challenge is as simple as enabling the Android function - invoke the APIs that work best for your app, test out the print function, and voilá! You have a new in-app feature and a guaranteed $50 gift card within hours.
Submit the link to your app in the Google Play Store to claim your gift card. You’ll also get a chance to be one of our grand prize winners: 10 submissions will each win a $500 Grand Prize.
Take your pre-existing apps and add android’s mobile print function, which can be accessed at the Android Dev Console Page. Then, submit your app’s Google Play store link with directions on how to print from your app.
This can be done in less than a couple of hours, after which you will receive your gift card and a chance at one of ten $500 Grand Prizes. Winners will be selected at the end of the challenge in early August. Submit by July 12th to be considered!

Last Year’s Winner: Squid Notes
“Our app lets students, professionals, and anyone else take notes electronically,” said Andrew Hughes, Squid Notes developer. “But sometimes it’s necessary to print notes, like a filled-out contract or marked-up essay. The Mopria App Challenge was a great opportunity for us to bring mobile print to our users so they can easily print their notes.”
