Samsung has launched a global app competition aimed at finding new applications utilizing group communication function. The applicants have to use "Samsung Chord SDK" which helps developers create a group with multi devices in real time automatically requiring no manual processing of devices which join or leave the group.
It is the second time Samsung has hosted the global contest for android developers. A total of 10 entries will be selected as winners, receiving a record total of $800,000 in prize money along with a variety of promotional benefits.
