First Round of ADC 2 Draws to a Close Ahead of Expectations

android_developers_blogThe Android Developers Blog is reporting that due to an overwhelming response to round one of the Android Developers Challenge 2, they are ending it effective today.  The news comes earlier than Google predicted it would as they figured it would take at least two weeks to get everything they needed.

The response to round one of the Android Developer Challenge 2 has been phenomenal! We originally expected that it would take two weeks to get all the necessary data to complete scoring. Over the last 10 days, more than 26,000 Android users reviewed and submitted our target of over 100 scores per application. With this enthusiastic support of the Android community, we are closing the first round of ADC 2 judging today. – Eric Chu

If you have the app installed on your phone, you will see a notification that the first round is now complete.  Don’t get rid of that app just yet though, round two won’t be far behind and Google will need your help again!
