|Stuart Parkerson in Android Friday, July 29, 2016|
The Mopria Alliance is reaching out to Android app developers with a new app competition. Co-sponsored by BeMyApp, the Mopria PRINTanomics Android App Challenge offers an online challenge designed to recognize the most innovative Android apps with mobile printing capabilities. You can register or learn more about the contest at http://appsthatprint.bemyapp.com
PRINTanomics Android App Challenge
The PRINTanomics Android App Challenge offers Android app developers the opportunity to win a series of bi-weekly prizes, including an Oculus Rift, by using the latest Android 4.4 or later Print API to enable mobile printing within their apps.
The Mopria Alliance will choose three winners, announced bi-weekly beginning on August 8, 2016, and name three grand prize winners on September 6, 2016, in three subcategories: business and finance, media and entertainment, health and education. Each grand prize winner will be awarded $2,000.
All apps will be evaluated equally based on the overall user-experience, creativity, functionality, app performance, and total number of user downloads during the challenge. To be eligible, developers must submit their app via the Google Play store and show their mobile printing capabilities via a social media platform of their choice, including Twitter, Facebook, or Google+.
“We are sponsoring the online challenge to give Android developers the opportunity to enhance the user experience of their app through mobile printing capabilities,” said Steve Kim, Marketing Chair at Mopria Alliance. “The Mopria Alliance is excited to be a part of this event because it encourages creativity among the developer community and lets them showcase their app in a new way.”
The Mopria Print Service is available for download from Google Play or via direct download at Mopria.org. Mopria technology also is currently preloaded and available for immediate use on select Huawei and Amazon devices.

Included as part of the research is a short survey on developer interest and actual integration of print into Android apps.
