Mobile contest application
Mobile contest application is a software that facilitates mobile users to participate in photo or writing contest that are simultanously runned through website or on Facebook on Competizer platform. We provide iphone app and android app that can be used on multiple mobile devices. Competition application is created on demand for each organizer separately.
How it works for participants?
User has to download contest application and install it on mobile device.
If app is delivered for different countries/languages then user can choose country/language after instalation. This choice is remembered. In the next step user chooses the contest (if there are few open). Otherwise jumps to the contest. Meanwhile sponsor ad could be displayed (if it's provided).
Once the contest is open user can browse, view gallery of entries or entry pages, comment entries, vote on entries, read articles, preview profile pages, sign up with Facebook or without, sign in just like on regular page.
To browse entries or to participate user needs internet connection.
Additionaly in photo competitions user can directly take and add a photo using native camera functionality (which is not possible while browsing the contest site on mobile browser).
Participant needs only one account to take part in the competition, that can be utilized both on mobile app and on other devices through browser.
Mobile contests ideas
Mobile app would be extremly useful if you run multiple competitions, one after another or few at a time or if you run one but long contest with new calls for entries every day or every week. It could be also the topic for your contest that asks for quick and mobile response: choose photo of the day, mobile category, new category each day, short messages, etc.
Participants can enter competition also on smartphones using browser. It's neatly thanks to responsive design. But with dedicated mobile app users get easy access to all your contests with one click. Moreover the speed and user experience are on highest level.
In photo competitions users can point, shoot and upload photo directly from mobile app. Then instantly share entry via social media.
How it works for organizer?
Mobile app is prepared on organizer's request. One app with one design covers all contests.
Competition set up, timeline, voting method is the same as for "normal" contest for desktop devices. The only differences are that another ads and another set of custom pages could be assigned especially for mobile app. So in fact organizer doesn't have additional work while creating and running a contest for mobile application.
