Announcing the Scope Showdown winners

We're thrilled to announce the results of the Ubuntu Scope Showdown: a contest to develop a scope in 6 weeks and win exciting prizes. Fleshing out Ubuntu's innovative take at the content and services experience, participants had the opportunity to use the new development tools to create a complete scope from scratch and publish it to the store in just a few weeks.

Contest submissions were reviewed by an international panel of judges including Canonical employees and members of the wider Ubuntu community:

The winner is: Cinema scope

The Cinema Scope by Daniele Laudani is the winner of this Scope Showdown edition. Daniele's scope scored the best judge ratings for its visual appeal, usability, general interest and use of scope features. To him goes the Dell XPS 13 developer laptop preloaded with Ubuntu. Enjoy!

Outstanding runner ups

The quality of all winning scopes was impressive, which resulted in a draw in some of the runner ups. In the end, rather than a tie break, we decided to include an extra prize as a recognition to their outstanding work. And without further ado, we're proud to present the additional winners.

Riccardo Padovani, of Ubuntu Core Apps fame, takes home with the Discerning Duck scope the Logitech UE Boom Bluetooth speakers, compatible with the Ubuntu phone.

Scopes everywhere

Congratulations to all winners, and to all participants: everyone did a fantastic job. Given the early adoption of scopes and developer tools, judges and reviewers were particularly impressed by the quality of the submissions.

Remember you can install any of the winner scopes and more from the Ubuntu Software Store. It's now time to start thinking beyond the apps grid and bringing interesting scopes that enable Ubuntu phone users to get the data that matters to them. Looking forward to seeing scopes everywhere!
