The applications "SweetDreams," "What the Doodle!?" and "WaveSecure" were the overall winners of the Google's Android Developers Challenge 2 (ADC 2).
The ADC competition was started by Google with the intention of boosting mobile application developer numbers and raising the standards of applications designed for the open-sourced Android platform.
Mobile phone application developers participating in the ADC 2 were awarded for their ingenious use of the mobile phone platform to create new and inspiring mobile apps.
Google announced the winners of the application design competition on their official Google blog page on November 30 with the applications "SweetDreams," "What the Doodle!?" and "WaveSecure" gaining the title of Overall Winners.
Winning projects included an application that wakes you when you get close to your destination; an app that senses the ambient noise around the user and adjusts the ring tone volume accordingly; a Pictionary-like game for Android phones; and an application that automatically changes your phone's settings when you go to sleep.
Outstanding examples of application design for the Android platform and a list of the top 200 application entries can be found on the dedicated code.google.com/android/adc/ page.
