Scopes Contest Mid-way Roundup

Wed, 19/11/2014 - 12:03

I recently blogged about my Ubuntu Scopes Contest Wishlist after we kicked off the Scopes Development Competition where Ubuntu Phone Scope developers can be in with a chance of winning cool devices and swag. See the above links for more details.

As a judge on that contest I’ve been keeping an eye out for interesting scopes that are under development for the competition. As we’re at the half way point in the contest I thought I’d mention a few. Of course me mentioning them here doesn’t mean they’re favourites or winners, I’m just raising awareness of the competition and hopefully helping to inspire more people to get involved.

Developers have until 3rd December to complete their entry to be in with a chance of winning a laptop, tablet and other cool stuff. We’ll accept new scopes in the Ubuntu Click Store at any time though

Robert Schroll is working on a GMail scope giving fast access to email.

Bogdan Cuza is developing a Mixcloud scope making it easy to search for cool songs and remixes.

Sam Segers has a Google Places scope making it easy to find local businesses.

Michael Weimann has been working on a Nearby Scope and has been blogging about his progress.

Dan has also been blogging about the Cinema Scope.

Finally Riccardo Padovani has been posting screenshots of his Duck Duck Go Scope which is already in the click store.

I’m sure there there are other scopes I’ve missed. Feel free to link to them in the comments. It’s incredibly exciting for me to see early adopter developers embracing our fast-moving platform to realise their ideas.

Good luck to everyone entering the contest.
