Huawei picks winners for its 2020 Huawei Developer Competition in UAE

Dubai Taxi Corporation app emerges first in the Golden Award Category

The Dubai Taxi Corporation (DTC) app was UAE’s best mobile application in the Huawei app store in 2020.

DTC emerged first in the ‘Golden Award Category’ in the 2020 edition of the Huawei Developer Competition for the Middle East and Africa region.

The Huawei Developer Competition has been created to incentivize existing or new developers in the region by awarding high-quality mobile applications built on the Huawei Mobile Services platform.

The main criteria of selection were based on the app’s popularity within the market, the Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) Core integration of the app, and the Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) Special Kit integration.

More than 4,900 registrations were registered across all countries in this year’s edition of the competition. Winners were selected within different three categories: Gold, Silver, and Bronze, and rewards included various cash prizes and Huawei Cloud Services vouchers.

The Silver Award category had Du, Matic housekeeping services and Viu entertainment apps as winners. Meanwhile, Emirates NBD, Fazaa benefits and GEMS Rewards apps came out top in the Bronze category.

Huawei has also invested $1bn in the “Shining-Star” programme to provide incentives for developers, encourage developers to launch their apps to AppGallery and integrate with Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) Core. More than 10,000 developers and partners around the world have received incentives from the programme for their apps to date.

Huawei has had to build its app store from scratch after the Trump administration banned the Chinese-headquartered company from accessing US technology, including Google Mobile Services.
