Mozilla Flame for Apps program

Hey Folks,

Firefox OS is the only smartphone/tablet OS on the market that treats web apps as first class citizen. Its already launched in 22 countries with 5 hardware makers and 5 global telcos. Mozilla has a new reference phone called the Flame who is pretty sweet and it has a very good "Phone For Apps" program where you may get a free phone to port your app.

Firefox OS is very barebones when compared to webOS but it still a great system and its rising on emergent markets so why not port your awesome Enyo apps to it? Its a market without leaders so you can shine on it.

I've created a website to list the current books about development for the system at http://firefoxosbooks.org and my own quick guide for development is free and open source available at https://leanpub.com/quickguidefirefoxosdevelopment/

Enyo 2.x works great on the phone and the platform is ripe for good third-party developers.

cheers

  • How strict is the requirement to port within a month? :) I have one or two in mind.

    I think its semi flexible. They did a phone for ports a few months back, and it took me about 5 weeks to get it up and running, and i didn't hear of any complaints.

    I have about got my app for a flame done, and should be uploading it this next week, which would put me at about 4 weeks since i got my flame.

    You will get an email from a firefoxOS person, who can help you port your app and answer any questions you may have.

    And I agree, Enyo runs very well on firefoxOS.

    Oh, and also, the Flame is a pretty sweet phone as well ;)
  • I don't think it is a hard requirement to port it under one month. You can probably explain why you need more time.

    I have almost all the Firefox OS devices in here with me including the flatfish tablet. I am more happy to help you guys test any app you want.

    More enyo apps in the platform would be great. :D
