I’ve been covering iPhone-related stories for a while now, and I’ve noticed something during that time: Omaha has quite a bit of iPhone development! Recently, our managing editor, Danny, was kind enough to point out this post on one of the blogs that we at SPN have a great deal of respect for: Silicon Florist. This made me think that there simply has to be enough Silicon Prairie-developed iPhone apps for us to do the same thing.
Here‘s another way to think of it: the holidays are upon us, which makes this a great time for us to offer up our favorite apps to our friends. After all, what could possibly make a better gift to the entrepreneur or creative-type in your life than a locally-grown iPhone app? They make great stocking stuffers. (They’re not literally in a stocking, but you get the idea.) Let’s face it, some of us spend the holidays around our family looking for a way to distract ourselves. iPhone apps are great for that, too, right? Wouldn’t it be great if you packed the kids into the car for a long trip, already armed with a volley of iPhone games to keep them quiet?
Basically, here’s what I’m getting at: I’m looking for submissions from our readers for iPhone apps developed on The Prairie. Do you know someone who created the next killer app from a basement in Hastings, Nebraska? Tell us about it. Have you been loving the iPhone game that was released by a friend of yours in Iowa? Let us know. We’ll share your submission with the SPN readers in a post similar to the one on Silicon Florist. Who knows, maybe you’ll find the perfect app you can share as a gift with a certain family member or friend. In turn, you’ll be supporting an iPhone developer in our region. Everybody wins! What could be more festive?
Here’s what we’d like for you to do: By Dec. 15 (next Tuesday), send an email to me, email@example.com, with a short description and link to the app you’d like to submit for consideration. We’re hoping for a description that we can edit, if necessary, and we’ll take care of the rest (find the app icon, screenshots, etc.). Keep in mind that we’re looking for apps from developers in our region, and personally, I’m excited to see submissions come in from small towns. If you have questions, you can contact me or Danny Schreiber (firstname.lastname@example.org). We’ll be happy to answer your questions.
Thanks for your help! I’m looking forward to your submissions.
