The whole team is really excited as we start heading over to the valley this week for Google's announcment of new machines and jellybeans (I know, that was poor). We're also going to be hosting a WIP Demo Lounge (Google i/o passes not required) just across from Google i/o on Wednesday and Thursday at Jillians and we hope you'll pop by to check out some cool demos, grab some grub, and win some prizes! Just let us know you'll be coming by signing up here.
Here is some info about our sponsors and the demos they will be showing:
AT&T Application Resource Optimizer (ARO)
Do you know your app’s performance? Is it ready to go up against the fastest apps, the apps your customers love to use again and again?
Get your app tested with ARO at the WIP Demo Lounge and see where it ranks. Use the report to make some simple configuration changes, and watch it climb up the leaderboard for some great prizes, and bragging rights.
What is ARO? It’s a free diagnostic tool for analyzing the performance of your mobile applications on any device and any network. The Data Analyzer looks at how your application is handling caching, and how you are managing the network connections for your app that affects its speed, network impact and battery usage. A report is generated and advice provided on how you can optimize your app.
Get a leap on your competitors. Download and try ARO on your own and come down to the Demo Lounge and show us the results.
Need help analyzing the report? The AT&T team will be on hand to help you out.

Develop a SmartWatch app extension – earn a FREE SmartWatch, along FREE app promotion . Have you started developing an app for the Sony SmartWatch, our smart micro display accessory for Android smartphones? Or maybe you’ve got a cool idea in mind? Whatever your inspiration may be, we’re now kicking off a campaign in search of great SmartWatch app innovations, and in return, Sony is ready to give you your own SmartWatch if you’re a qualified developer.
And if you’ve created a really cool or useful app, we might ask for your app to be promoted in Sony’s online marketing channels, like the Sony Mobile Facebook page (with close to 7 million fans), as well as getting a slot in the Recommender app, installed on more than 10 million Sony Xperia™ smartphones. If we think your app extension has what it takes, we will contact you for further discussions.
