PayPal has just announced their third PayPal X Developer Challenge and their aim is to get developers to integrate their mobile payments feature into your app. Starting today and running through May 14th, developers can submit their applications to PayPal, with three winners announced on June 29th. To motivate the troops, PayPal is dangling $25,000 for the first place winner, with $15,000 going to second and $10,000 going to third place. What specifically are they looking for in the app? As they put it, they are seeking “something new, something surprising, something with business potential, something that integrates PayPal payments.”
If you’d like to integrate PayPal mobile payments into your app and submit into the contest, you’ll need to get the proper files and libraries first. PayPal will also be at the Android Dev Camp in San Jose tomorrow where they should be on hand to answer your questions and concerns.
