On the third day of the CES 2012 in Las Vegas, the Mobile App Showdown 2012 was taking place right in the convention center Las Vegas. Via online voting people could vote for their favorite app and ten out of the over 1000 nominated apps were presented at the CES 2012 today. Each of the ten companies was allowed to do a four minutes presentation to get people into the app. Florian Gschwandtner, CEO of runtastic, did a great presentation of the runtastic Roadbike app and got a lot of attention on him and runtastic. After the presentation round two prices were awarded. One of them was based on the ongoing online voting and one of them was based on the noise the crowd did right here at the event. Out of a very wide pool of apps the Macaw mobile App and the Magisto App won an the competition.
This day 3 of the CES was not that intense as the first two days have been. Not this huge mass of people came to the convention anymore, still there were thousands that came to get information concerning the newest products of the exhibitors. Also the last day of the CES 2012 will be an interesting one and we are looking foward to tomorrow. Of course I will keep you up-to-date with the latest news.
