Huawei gathers students, mobile app devs for Apps Up Contest 2022


Huawei is inviting students, mobile app developers, hobbyists, professionals, or anyone with an app idea to its upcoming global app innovation contest, Apps Up!

Apps UP is Huawei’s contest event bringing talents worldwide to create an app ecosystem that intelligently connects everything. It aims to inspire developers to innovate, connect to people, devices, and scenarios, and create elevated app experiences for users. The deadline for app submissions is on October 9, 2022.

The significant advantage of participating in Apps Up is expediting your app’s launch and bringing them quickly to the market alongside technical support. In addition, Huawei AppGallery will also give developers a platform to reach out to 730 million monthly active HUAWEI device users.

Submitted works must include at least one HMS open capability or service. They must run smoothly on devices that have HMS installed. The evaluation process will consist of a review by judges who are industry leaders and followed by a public vote.
