Calling Malaysian Developers and Technology Entrepreneurs – Windows Phone 7 Challenge Launched

Singaporean-based media company, Stream Media will be hosting a regional competition for tech developers and technology entrepreneurs to develop applications using the Windows 7 platform coupled with MoVend”s in-app payment system. The competition would give developers a chance to win over SGD $2,000 worth of Nokia products, while having developed a commercial app for the Windows 7 platform.
Stream Media and we have recently launched a Windows Phone 7 challenge (in collaboration with Nokia) in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. WP7 developers stand a chance to win over $2,000 worth of Nokia Lumia phones by developing a WP7 app using MoVend”s in-app payments SDK.
About MoVend
MoVend, the flagship product of Stream Media, is an in-app payments solution that allows developers to activate multiple payments on Android, Windows Phone and Blackberry platforms, using just a single SDK library. Typically, developers who want to enable multiple local payments will need to integrate a lot of different SDKs provided by the different payment gateways, but MoVend streamlines this process by aggregating all these payment channels into one.
“We are getting really good uptake with the latest Windows Phone 7 phones that are launched in recent months. We want to encourage more developers to develop WP7 apps with MoVend as it will benefit both the users (to have more quality apps) and developers (who can monetize through IAP on the platform). Some of the apps that are launched recently with us are doing really well (just launched last week – , but they are not available for this region) and we want to help developers in this region do the same.” – Chua Zi Yong, CEO of Stream Media
