Paypal Wants Developers To Come On Down For App Challenge

In an attempt to generate extra buzz for using their payment system in Android apps, Paypal has started a contest for developers with a grand prize of $25,000.

Remaining vague in the competition's criteria, the eBay-owned company simply asks devs to integrate secure payments into their Android apps, adding that they would like "something new, something surprising, something with business potential." In addition to the $25K grand prize, the runner up will receive $15,000, followed by $10,000 for third place (much more generous than the kitchen appliances they give you on Wheel of Fortune).

Paypal lists some "important deadlines" for anyone interested in entering:

  • May 14 – Deadline to submit your application for approval
  • June 3rd – Deadline for making changes
  • June 7th – Application live in an Android Marketplace
  • June 29th – Winners announced

May the best secure payment system in a mobile application win.
