    Hi Catalin,

    The deadline remains April 2. We'll notify all challenge followers if there's any change. There are still loaner devices available from Samsung, if this would help you in the time remaining. The program is first come first served. Email galaxynotedevsupport@sta.samsung.com to find out more and sign up for one.

    Best,
    Peter

    +1 for extension.

    I just applied for the loaner program.

    It would be great if the app deadline is extended so that developers can get some more time to create quality applications.

    +1 for extension. Given the size of the prize pool, Samsung can probably get a lot more and better apps written for this device with a longer development window. Plus, the month of March is tax preparation season in the USA, where the contest is focused, which for some of us means we don't have as much spare time for development.

    +1 for extension. I submitted one app, but my much more complex app is not yet completed, and an extension would be great.

    Hi everyone,

    We appreciate all the hard work you have put into creating your apps. The deadline for the Samsung Galaxy Note S Pen App Challenge is today – Monday, April 2nd at 5:00 pm EDT. Many thanks to everyone for supporting and participating in this challenge. We look forward to receiving your submissions.

    Best,

    :-( I worked all night trying to get my app finished, but it looks like I'll still fall short of the deadline

    Hi Christopher,

    Thanks for writing. You still have until 5 pm EDT tonight to submit – we hope you do!

    Best,

    Will there be a continuing loaner program for folks who miss the deadline but would still like to complete and market an app? Will you be, or would you consider, seeding developers with devices if they show you working betas of quality pen apps?

    Richard, you can send an email to galaxynotedevsupport@sta.samsung.com to request a loaner device. The loaner program is a separate Samsung Developer program and not a part of the Galaxy Note S Pen App Challenge, so devices are still available after the competition ends. Keep in mind that devices are limited, and are available on a first come first served basis.

    We came up with an education app integrating with the SPen nicely for the last two weeks, but too bad we couldn't make the deadline. Feels terrible not being able to complete the submission, despite the sleepless last couple of days.

    Agreed, I'm heading to bed after a 24 hour programming session...still no submission :-( Maybe someone should set up a G+ group for developers who TRIED to submit an app to the competition but ran out of time...or maybe it's my exhaustion talking. In any case, I bet there will be some interesting apps to come out of this. I hope the winners are great apps, otherwise I'll feel even worse about not just getting something in.

    Chris and other developers that didn't make the deadline:

    You can contact galaxynotedevsupport@sta.samsung.com should you have any further requests. We like to see good apps!
