Build Fund 2013 Winners

After carefully weighing all the applications, we’ve determined the 10 Build Fund winners! This year’s Build Fund theme was creation, and these winners best exemplify that drive to create something different and exciting.

Here’s what our CEO Brian Wong had to say, “With more than 300 applications from developers around the globe, we were again amazed by the overwhelming response to Build Fund this year. In addition to super addicting games, we’re very excited for a wide range of apps in fitness, sports, and even art, to be in the winner’s circle this year. All the winners combine cool concepts and unique ideas with great design, and we can’t wait to start rewarding all the awesome moments ahead.”

Each winner receives a $10,000 in cash and $5,000 in services. A special thanks to all our sponsors–Parse, Urban Airship, Amazon Web Services, Crittercism, Localytics and Pepsi’s Propel–who will provide these amazing services and help elevate these apps.
