Nokia n97 widget contest.

Filed under: Slight off-topic — Tags: , , — Andrew Zhilin @ 03:02

Sorry if this post is not 100% maemo related. I want to invite all maemo community to join interesting contest, that’s held within Nokia Innovation Newsdesk. It’s called Nokia n97 Widget Competition. You just have to come up with some fresh idea, some one-touch breakthru, draw it as good as you can and post it! No coding, debugging and so on, just you, your imagination, paint/photoshop/gimp/whatever you like and weird upload system, that actually uploads your creation but waits bout a week to show it.
Here’s mine by the way, I’ve taken my idea of Uni-Search from “New Year Countdown Series” and made it look as n97 widget.
Funny that it was already ripped off three times: by Ilian Tihov with his two widgets: “Apple movie trailers”
and “Digital Retro Clock”
And say hello to Martin Gerla with his “Ovi search” widget.

Also I’ve already found another Maemo Community member’s widget – Famous “Flip Alarm Clock No Party” by Ciro Ippolito!

So jump in and take a chance to win n97!


  1. Now that you mentioned it, I didn’t know they were ripped off from you :\
    Damn buggers. But I believe Nokia will know based on the submission time. I’ve refrained from publishing my widget designs anywhere on the web until it appears in the gallery for fear of plagiarism, maybe you should do the same if you’re submitting more widgets

  2. I submitted a widget there, but I don’t think its going to get ripped off – how many people you know like that Mobile Web Server idea to take my idea anyways ;)

  3. Lol, thank you for the “Famous Flip Alarm Clock No Party”.
    Good to see that maemo people is spreading a bit outside the tablet but the symbian world is tough!
