article imageCroatia's Zzzzapp! creates global contest for new apps

By Paul Bradbury     Aug 23, 2012 in Technology
Split - A Croatian Internet start-up business in a hurry is seeking app development ideas from around the globe for its innovative Wi-Fi landing page technology.
Zzzzapp!, the surprise winner of StartUp Split Live this past June, when it beat 15 other European technology start-ups, launched a global applications contest with $3,500 in prize money on August 21, 2012.
Tino Tokic, the firm’s CEO, said that the new contest “is designed to attract the best and brightest new ideas to add even more unique content to the Zzzzapp platform. We’re not looking for complete, ready to go apps,” he continued, “but just great ideas.”
The heart of Zzzzapp's innovative technology is software that turns any Wi-Fi hotspot into a content delivery platform via a feature-rich interactive landing page with information and applications.

The start-up has only been incorporated since May but its system is operational in Split and on the island of Hvar at several dozen sites that include tourist board offices, hotels, restaurants and other venues.
According to Tokic, Zzzzapp! generated "97,000 page landing views in July from more than 25,000 individual users who spent an average of more than 43 seconds on our landing pages."
The first prize winning idea of the "Great Zzzzapp App Idea Contest" will receive $2,000, second $1,000 and third $500, he said.
To get an application form and more info developers should go to the contest page on the Zzzzapp! website.
