Tizen isn't dead: Samsung offering developers $4 million to populate app store
| by Nishtha Kanal |
So you thought Tizen was dead? The OS is only just getting started. The Samsung-backed open-sourced OS now has an app challenge for developers to contribute to the platform. The prize fund for this challenge is a staggering $4 million. Backed by Samsung and Intel, Tizen is luring in developers with the promise of a cash prize for developing apps.
Developers have up to November to familiarise themselves with Tizen and start developing apps for the forthcoming platform. Earlier this month, there were rumours that Tizen has been cancelled by Samsung, but this move would suggest otherwise. The app challenge is already under way and you can sign up to register yourself and your app for it here. Winners will be announced in December.
