3 weeks to go!

By Krishnan Nair

We're inching closer to the final weeks of the Free the TV Challenge. It's not too late to enter — start building a converged app today! We're here to help you every step of the way: just post your questions in the challenge forum or the Samsung D Forum

If you've already started working on a submission, here are some reminders to help you make sure your entry is complete and your apps are easy to test and review.

Submission Checklist

  1. Finish your submission video — check out these tips on how to make one
  2. Finalize the name of your app
  3. Write a summary of your submission (including a description of functionality, uses, and interactivity)
  4. Decide on which image(s) to include
  5. Review the summary of how to enter and the Enter a Submission page one more time, to make sure you have the required items ready to go

Please note that each submission (specifically, all functionality and text) must be in English.
