Street Apps Challenge, the Thomson Reuters sponsored Developer Contest for developing Smart phone based financial applications, has announced its winners. Our previous coverage of the contest asked readers to go and vote for the applications that they liked. This was part of the public voting phase that ended on August 29, 2010. At that time, we covered the two leading applications in terms of votes received, TRAM and Knowledge Storm.
You might not expect a company nearly 160 years old to innovate its industry. Perhaps that's why Thomson Reuters is looking to developers to create the next big thing for financial professionals. To get there, the company is sharing mountains of data via its new Knowledge Direct API and offering $25,000 in prizes for its app contest.
