Frequently Asked Questions

    What is a demo app?

    A demo app is a polished, nearly final version of your app that provides the user a quality experience. The portion of the app being demoed should have the experience of a final app, however the demo may not have all the features needed for a fully functional software title, hence a demo. Your demo app submission can be a completely finished app. A demo is merely the minimum threshold for entry.

    The contest calls for Windows “Desktop” apps not Windows “Store” apps. What’s the difference?

    While fans of the Windows Store, the demo apps we are seeking for the contest are those able to take advantage of the suite of Intel developer tools designed to help developers create cutting edge, touch-enabled apps. For a comprehensive comparison between Windows Desktop and Windows Store apps as well as a complete listing of the available Intel tools, please visit http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/windows-8-store-vs-desktop-app-development.

    What I am supposed to do after I get the approval from Devworx to submit app?

    Create innovative Windows 8 demo apps for new All-in-One and Tablet devices. Continue the evolution of computing with creative solutions to consumer and enterprise challenges. Leverage the combined power of a new operating system, form factors, and Intel® architecture to establish new use cases and PC interaction.

    How many app ideas will be selected as finalists from phase 1?
