Delivery.com is challenging developers to come up with original apps that will enhance the way in which we place local online orders. With $65,000 up for grabs, the App Challenge: Develop, Disrupt & Deliver is seeking apps that can drive revenue for local businesses like liquor stores, dry cleaners and restaurants.

The site has opened its API to developers to create apps for the web, iOS, Android, Windows 8, Xbox or Playstation.

Successful submissions should demonstrate a mastery of consumer engagement, which can include interactive images and videos, calendar and subscription services, gaming, social media and DIY experiences.

“Developers hold the keys to unlock more online sales for local businesses with innovative apps that leverage our enhanced API and change the way people explore their communities and order online,” said Jed Kleckner, CEO, delivery.com.

Through this competition, delivery.com hopes to work more closely with developers, and wants to branch out their network to include more businesses in major cities nationwide. The competition will run from now to June 10, 2014. Winners will be announced the week of July 16th.

The App Challenge is being administered by ChallengePost, a platform that is helping hackathons and challenges succeed by offering people an easy way to promote their event.  To find out more about the competition, you can visit its official site here.
