Leverage iOS7's new features and APIs. Win great prizes!

Over the next year, we'll be hosting a series of online hackathons on ChallengePost. Each one will have a different theme and different prizes. Check back often for new contests, and see the first one below!

iOS7 offers myriad new features and APIs, and Appcelerator has everything you need to leverage them all. For this Mobile DevChallenge, we're looking for great implementations of iOS7 apps built with Appcelerator.

This could be an app you conceive today and ship before the deadline, it could be an app you've already been working on, or it could be an iOS7-ready version of an app you've already shipped.

Brainstorm your ideas. Form your team. Design and build an amazing, disruptive mobile application. Submit it for the Mobile Dev Challenge and blow us away!

We're looking for innovative, disruptive mobile technologies and services. Start building the buzz for your application today with the #appcelerator hashtag.

We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
