Huawei announces Apps UP contest for the best apps based on HMS Core

01 July 2020
There will be cash prizes totaling $1 million and the best apps will be promoted on the AppGallery.

Sort by:

If Huawei wants to be competitive then they want to be cheaper than Apple & Google.
1% fee for the 1st 2 years,
5% fee forever after that.

one day US will regret they banned them. That day will not be far ahead. And nothing will be un-don-able

Why cant they jus... moremaybe you have forgotten, google is notorious for "leaking" data especially on android, or you just conveniently ignored that news articles and you are accusing other country?! EVERY COUNTRY has a "back" door to hack or leak data, it is not exclusive to one country. don't tell me US does not collect data without the individual knowing

Huawei must be desperate to see the sorry state of its app gallery...nobody is buying Huawei anymore outside China. They cannot compete with Google which is used worlwide, HMS is just the poor man's gallery. Stop spying on people for the chinese government and they will be back on the market. At least Google is honest about spying on us....

price are too damn low compares to googles offer.

even if the winner has its app being promoted in the appgallery, it still won't be downloaded/used by the chinese people as long as the app is being developed by a western country. trust me, chinese people don't like apps made by westerners. they will always reverse engineer it and then sell it as their own. just look at whatsapp, twitter, youtube etc...

Hilmawan, 01 Jul 2020If Huawei is really serious about developing their mobile e... moreA good way could be to make high tech devices cheap. The app ecosystem alao depends on how many consumers it has and the acceptance. If they can forgoe high profit margins and just sell over the break even, many including I would happily buy the Huawei Nova 7i at discounted rates. This in turn would make their tech and ecosystem widely accepted and challenge the others.

If Huawei is really serious about developing their mobile ecosystem in the near future they will be able to compete with Google or Apple, i just hope HMS doesn't end up like Tizen.

A desperation move by ccp to save huawei. Why cant they just follow all the guidelines (accepted by all) and be transparent in all their manufacturing processes. Stop using kirin with NPU data backdoor. Huawei must be taken away from ccp’s grip.
