Meet the Fast Track App
Winners, Notables & Finalists!


About the Challenge

Core77 and Microsoft's Windows Phone teams challenged the international design community to design apps for Windows Phone 7.5 that would help users do their work—where ever it takes place. Five winning app designs were selected and the designers connected to established Windows Phone app developers to advise or partner with to help develop their ideas into functioning apps.

The remaining Finalists were also provided resources and interested Windows Phone developer contacts, and the first to develop and launch their apps by the end of February became our Notable Finalists. Find out more at the original Fast Track App submission site.


Winners
