Droid O



With the fast paced revolution of smart phones in the market, the Android is now the fastest growing smart phone OS, with over 100 million devices activated and with 400,000 users being added every day. Tech junkies are fixated with the Android, which is used on a wide range of devices from tablets to netbooks. However, this OS is still a fresh technology with much scope for expansion. At this juncture, Pragyan brings to you an event which gives you the opportunity to develop your own Android apps. A huge market potential is also available for the created apps, what with Google making paid apps available in India.  The app need not pass through strict regulation norms to get listed in the market.



Droid O allows participants to create apps on Windows, Mac or Linux using Java programming language in conjunction with the Android SDK. It tests the functionality and ingenuity of the created app.  As there is no specific category for submissions, participants are urged to be innovative and creative in the creation of their app. Droid provides a great opportunity for college students to gain hands on experience working with Java in the development of real time apps. Gear up – Think it; app it!
