Fox and the AppNation developer conference are holding a “Pimp my app” contest to develop a mobile app for the hit TV show “Fringe”. The contest is free to enter and the winer receives $10,000 – so not a bad deal at all.
The contest started yesterday and goes until September 3, and the winners will be announced at the AppNation conference on September 13-14.
