App My State

I'm proud to announce that my app for Windows Mobile 6 and 6.5 devices, Metropolitan Melbourne, has won second prize in the Victorian Government's App My State competition!

On Monday I went to the awards event at the State Library of Victoria to accept the prize. Premier of Victoria John Brumby was there to present the awards, and it was interesting to see the other entries and winners. Well done to all who entered! I won a 17" Macbook Pro, a 16GB iPhone 3GS, a 250GB PS3 Slim, a JB Hi-Fi gift card, and a MinoHD 8GB flip video camcorder. The prizes have a total value of $5000.
