Firefox OS App Days comes to an end

by Rob Zwetsloot

The international Firefox OS App days event finished just over a week ago, giving people a chance to make their own apps for Firefox OS

With events all around the world, the Firefox OS App Days event was an international hackfest that gave people the opportunity to get their hands on Firefox OS to code some applications. With members of the development team also around to speak to, there was plenty of chances to get some quality time developing for the new mobile OS.

Along the way, hundreds of applications were created, with many submitted to the Marketplace already. The Mozilla blog brought attention to five in particular:

Bessa – An image editor for Firefox OS, demonstrated in Berlin
Web Sliding Puzzle – a sliding puzzle game made from the Firefox OS App Days logo, demonstrated in Paris by Mathieu Pillard
Ash’s Rising – a strategy game, demonstrated in Toronto
Travel Saver – a local travel app, demonstrated in Warsaw
FoxKehCalc – a Fox-themed calculator, demonstrated in Tokyo

Mozilla are still taking submissions for the Marketplace, and if you missed your local App Days event, more will be organised soon.
