Two weeks to go – submit early!

There are just two weeks left in the first round of the Gear App Challenge. Submissions are due July 17 at 5pm EDT. (Find out what time that is in your city.) 

If you haven't created a draft yet, please do so now. And if you've just joined us recently, explore the quick-start guide, and start putting together your entry.

Submission checklist

Before you say "ship it!", here are some reminders to help you make sure everything is in order.

  • Have you created an account with the Samsung Apps Seller Office and submitted your app to Samsung Apps.
  • Have you created a submission video? Does your video clearly demonstrate how your app works? (Tip: How to make a great submission video
  • Have you included at least one or more screenshots of your app?
  • Did you include step-by-step testing instructions, including instructions for how to download or access your app for testing, as well as login instructions if a login is required?

Since there are so many details to take care of, be sure to read through the official rules and How to Enter section more than once. Or better yet, have a friend or colleague provide a second pair of eyes to make sure you didn’t miss anything.

Good luck!
