MSN Messenger Contest Winners

John Musser, February 7th, 2006

MessengerPoolMicrosoft just announced the winners in their MSN Messenger World’s Best App Contest. The goal was to inspire developers to create interesting multi-person applications and games within Messenger. Which they did. Here are the top 3 winners:

  • Grand Prize: Pool allows you to try your hand at pool hustling while messaging.
  • 1st Prize Games: Hide and Seek lets one player has to hide in a MSN Virtual Earth map and the other one has to find him. MSN Search is integrated for helping dig-up clues.
  • 1st Prize Non-Game: Noteasic allows you and someone else to work on a note at the same time. Two users can work on different parts of the note and see the changes/edits as they happen and then send a copy of the note to others.

The winners got some nice prizes for their efforts.

There are currently a dozen Messenger apps listed here. You can see them via this URL:
