gskThe Appys announces the GSK APP-challenge 2014.

Have you ever dreamed of developing the next great app? Do you have an interest in sports, fitness, healthcare or medicine – the key areas that are experiencing an explosion in brilliant, and useful, app development?

The GSK App-challenge is open to anyone in Ireland who has an idea for an app and wants to get it made. ENTER NOW. Entries are free and the entry form is very simple to use. The deadline for entries to the GSK App-challenge is November 10, 2014 at 10pm.


The potential app must relate to one of three categories:

* Fitness

* Health & Wellness

* Medical


The GSK App-challenge

“Nothing lends itself better to apps than health and well-being, and the potential to transform lives is immense,” says Aidan Lynch, managing director, GSK Ireland. “We hope the GSK App-challenge will inspire people to think about and conceive apps that can help people do more, feel better and live longer.”

“The GSK App-challenge winner will receive huge support when it comes to taking their idea to the next level,” says Owen Cooney, managing director, ProductFitter, Ireland. “We are looking forward to seeing creative, useful ideas that can help people in their daily lives.”

A strategic business roadmap for the winning app idea, designed by ProductFitter, plus a media and PR package from Digital Times that will drive public awareness of the app, are up for grabs. The winner of the GSK App-challenge will be crowned at The Appys awards ceremony which takes place at CHQ building, Dublin on November 20, 2014.



All the intellectual property associated with the ideas and apps entered will remain with the person who entered the idea. “The GSK App-challenge is about encouraging more people to think about great app ideas, none of the parties involved want any IP claim or share of future app revenues,” says Conmy. “The winner takes all, as they say.”


The best idea wins

It’s the best idea we are looking for. It can be just an idea, or it could be an app already in development.

How do I enter?

You simply go to the online entry form on and it should take just a few minutes.
