Needless to say, all of us here are on Cloud nine and we would like to thank Research In Motion (RIM) and Adobe for offering such a wonderful platform for Adobe AIR developers like us.


The 2011 BlackBerry Developer Challenge for Best Flash/AIR Mobile App for BlackBerry PlayBook, was aimed at finding the best apps by quality, innovation, creativity and compelling user experience. This challenge was held between 30th May and 12th August 2011.

All the submitted applications were judged by a panel of experts from Adobe Systems and RIM. The submissions were evaluated on four main criteria: quality of development, level of visual appeal, user experience and creativity & innovation. After an extensive process of evaluation, StockPulse was finally declared the winner of this challenge!
