Just this last week we've had a fabulous WIMM Spring Developers Project project going on in collaboration with SlashGear and WIMM in which we had you, the everyday average and awesome brainstormer, think up and write down Micro App idea's for the WIMM One developer kit. This project had us checking and working to find the greatest ideas of the pack and selecting the top 10 to receive the WIMM One developer kit for themselves! Have a peek at the winners once more and make sure, if you're one of them, to contact us asap!

What you'll be seeing here is the full list of all TEN of the best ideas from the entire contest listing who will receive WIMM One developer kit units once they contact us with their contact information. If you are one of the ten folks below, please be sure to contact us at giveaway[at]slashgear.com as soon as possible with your name, shipping address, and phone number so we can ship your unit out soon!

WINNERS LIST:

1. Allistair Lee

"As I am a frequent traveler, I have been using Google Maps on my Android phone to navigate around all the time. Taking my 4.5" phone out and putting it back into my pocket all the time can sometimes be a hassle, especially when I am carrying my luggage. With this, I see many possibilities. Instead of having to check my phone regularly, I can now pair the WIMM One with my phone and navigate around with only WIMM One. I can even expand it even more, with a touch of a menu, I can have all the nearest POI shown on my WIMM One."

2. Tommy Thompson

"Since a lot of the Smart watches have the ability to get text notifications I think it would be cool if you could setup quick responses, choose one on the watch and have it send it from the phone. Instead of having to pull out your phone for every single reply. Also have the app be a part of the phone so you can edit the quick responses to say what you want them to say."

3. Micah Madru

"An emergency information app. Incase you ever get into to trouble, like you're knocked unconscious and bleeding, this app will have all the most vital information that would be accessible. Who to call if it's an emergency, your blood type, what health procedures you've had and so on."

4. Chad Peiper

A micro app I have been developing on the emulator for the last month is an app called MindfulWatch.
This app is for persons with ADHD and other behavioral-related issues. MindfulWatch has two modes of interaction:
Training Mode and Reminder Mode.

In training mode a user selects one self help message and is alerted at a fixed interval throughout the
day to, for example, the message Relax might be scheduled every 15 minutes within a time span (e.g. 9:00am - 4:00pm)

1) The user selects a a relevant phrase {list of 15 items} and the ability to create a custom phrase
2) The user selects a fixed interval in minutes/hour for the message alert (1, 2, 3, 5, 10, 15, 20, 30, 60 minutes)
3) The user selects a start and end time (e.g. 6:00am to 5:00pm)

A training alert (vibration) will last 10 seconds and will automatically repeat again in 20 seconds.

In Reminder Mode a user can create up to 10 reminders a day. These alerts remind you to do specific tasks
throughout the day at pre-specified times. These alerts occur daily.

5. Matthew Gasbarre

How about some clocks? I mean the ones that are already on there are nice, but I'm thinking that they could be more. Using a client on a computer a user could customize their clock with an UI, picking from a variety of watch faces, hands, numbers and the like they could make a watch to their liking. This could also be done for a Digital face, allowing for color change, position, and sizing. Same for a binary style, and possibly even some watch faces inspired by the famous TokyoFlash line. Things like weather and Inbox micro-widgets could be placed on the face allowing for even more customization. And once the user is done using the UI to build it they can sync it over Wi-fi like the rest of the settings. I think it'd be really awesome if users could also use custom background images, I'm sure this device needs more cats on it.

6. Edward Ferguson

I would love to see a kid tracker GPS feature with a call mom and dad panic button.

7. Michael Olson

This would work well as a wrist-born multimedia controller. You could use it to control your favorite music app when your phone is docked or in your pocket/purse, manipulate a movie when your tablet is propped up for watching or docked to a TV, or as a wireless control for Google TV.

8. Harry Levene

The ability to use the wimm as a viewfinder for the camera on your phone for when your holding out the phone catch an angle you can't see or when you are taking photos of yourself..

9. Jens Neubauer

A museum guide. A multi-language, location-aware app that can tell you in-depth information on the the exhibit you are currently viewing. Audio can be added via a bluetooth headset.

Ideally, this should work without the need for a phone, so the WIMM devices can be rented out to visitors for the duration of their stay. Since GPS will not be available in this setup and would probably not work indoors anyway, I'm thinking something like Bluetooth beacons for determining location.

10. Sarvesvara Dasa

Find my car: We can store the GPS co-ordinate when the car is parked (of course on a outdoor environment). The,the device can show the car's position in direction wise - where is my car? This can show distance from car, time of parking, direction,elevation etc. If GPS in WIMM doesn't work, can use GPS of the device.

Remember to contact us as soon as possible so we can get you your WIMM One developer kit in a timely manner - lets start railing out those Micro Apps!
