SP Students win Nokia Lumia 800 Smart Phones

10 April 2012

Students from the Diploma in Information Technology at the School of Digital Media and Infocomm Technology, Singapore Polytechnic, have scored a massive win this semester. For a start, they have developed and published more than 10 games, across the 2 classes of a total of 31 students. Students worked in groups of 3 to 4, exchanging ideas, and leveraged on the best skills of each team member, from programming to art to game design.

The smart phone game apps are published on Microsoft’s Windows Phone Marketplace, and cover a variety of genres and target audiences, casual games to 3D shooters. All of the game apps are free for download, and are supported by mobile advertisement networks. Students used mobile ad exchange networks such as AdDuplex to expose their apps to more users.

  their apps on other developers’ apps.

With their experiences and successes on the Windows Phone Marketplace, they were further encouraged by their lecturer, Mr. Alvin Tang, to take part in Nokia’s developer contest, #LumiaAppsChallenge.  Each approved team has pledged to develop 3 apps in 3 months.  The students’ enthusiasm and innovativeness paid off, with 5 teams that were awarded the highly coveted Nokia Lumia 800 smart phones.   The students faced fierce contest from a large number of entries, with only 50 proposals approved by Nokia Singapore.
