Apple’s Planet of the Apps Is Looking For You
Calling all my mobile app developers!
If you’re not familiar, ‘Planet of the Apps’ is a new unscripted series about the world of app development. Backed by Apple, the show includes will.i.am as one of the executive producers with the aim to take a deeper dive into world of mobile app development featuring the app creators themselves.
According to the creators, Planet of the Apps isn’t just a show to raise awareness for developers, it’s a launch pad and accelerator for exceptional developers. Those accepted will have a chance to receive:
- Mentorship: Hands-on guidance from some of the world’s best experts in tech and entertainment.
- Funding: Those who make it to the final round will meet with top-tier VCs investing up to $10m over the course of the season.
- Marketing and Promotion: Featured placement in the App Store at the end of the show. Also, the potential to reach millions of viewers around the world on Apple platforms.
Instead of pattern matching hand-picking app developers to appear on the show, Planet of the Apps is casting its net far and wide to find motivated app developers of all backgrounds who want their apps highlighted and their stories told…and some extra funding!
If you’re down, the show will only feature the top 100 creators and online applications are being accepted now through Friday, August 26. Additionally, you must agree to have an iOS, macOS, tvOS, or watchOS app in a beta or functional state by October 21.
