Canpages extends API Contest for iPhone, BlackBerry, Android and Web Developers

Canpages has extended the deadline for its nation-wide Application Programming Interface (API) contest for smart phone application developers on the iPhone, BlackBerry, Android and web platforms from March 28th to April 12th.

The contest kicks off the opening of Canpages’ API to provide access to more than 1,000,000 business listings across Canada and will reward one grand prize winner $5K in cash, as well as three runners-up with $1,000.

Developers still have two weeks left to develop an application leveraging Canpages’ listings database for the iPhone, BlackBerry, Android or web platforms along with a video showcasing how the application works.

Voting will open to the public until April 12th. The popular vote will designate four applications, at which point Canpages’ will decide on the grand prize winner. At the close of the contest, Canpages will announce the grand prize application and three runners up. Along with the cash prizes, winners will have their applications featured on Canpages.ca.
