Thrutu Announces Judges for Their Button Developer Contest

Wendell Santos, September 22nd, 2011

ThrutuThrutu helps users enhance the phone calls experience by providing “buttons” that let users access real-time features and share information while using Andriod or iPhone devices. Last month we told you about the company holding their first ever contest using the Thrutu API.

Today Thrutu announced the judging panel for the Button Developer Contest including ProgrammableWeb’s very own executive editor Adam Duvander. In addition, Thrutu VP Liz Rice and Thrutu CTO Chris Mairs will also be on the panel which will announce their winner in October.

Developers will want to act quickly as the contest submission deadline is September 30th. For ideas of the various functionalities offered by the Thrutu buttons, contestants can visit Thrutu Central. The grand prize is $3,000 and all contestants will receive a Thrutu T-shirt.

In June we wrote about how Thrutu could make calls more useful. The company’s in-house button to connect its platform to the PayPal API won second place in PayPal’s Android challenge. Thrutu is using the winnings to fund its developer contest.
