March App Madness 2013

The AAWP app was up against some tough competition throughout the contest. Our opening round was against Gas Buddy, and the percentage victory was 68% to 32%.

Following that our next two rounds were against meteorological apps. Weather Flow was first (67-22), followed by Amazing Weather HD (70-30).

Burning rubber next was the 'championship' semi-final round, with HD driving title from Gameloft, Asphalt 7, our match up. Perhaps some help from Gas Buddy earlier in the contest was needed, with a 65-35 victory to AAWP.

Twitter joined us in the Final, having despatched WhatsApp in its semi final. There's a strong opponent. But in the end another indie app won Nokia's app contest, just like last year as we maintained a similar margin of victory with a 62-38 final percentage score.
