7 days to go! Are you ready?

The submission deadline for the Samsung Galaxy Note S Pen App Challenge is Monday, April 2 at 5 p.m. EDT. Winners will receive $205,000 in cash and prizes as well as promotional exposure and recognition.

Here's a handy checklist to help you wrap things up. Ask yourself whether you can answer "Yes" to each of these questions before hitting that submit button!

  1. Does your video demonstrate clearly your working app and its S Pen functionality on a Galaxy Note or an emulator?
  2. Does your text description explain what your app does?
  3. Does your text description explain how the user experience is enhanced by S Pen integration?
  4. Do you link to your application on Google Play or a website where your .apk file is available for download?
  5. Have you reviewed the Official Rules and the Enter an Application page to make sure your submission includes all the required items?

If you have any technical questions about the S Pen SDK, please email or post questions on the Discussions tab. For questions about the challenge website or rules, email us at and include "Samsung" in the subject.

Happy coding, and good luck!
