    Search Android Market for "Challenge" and it will come up. IMHO Google should force prominent placement in the "featured app" section. Its too hard to find.

    It's pretty nice...Only thing that sucks is that you need to uninstall an app before you can review another one.

    I found a way to keep the application.

    If you want to keep the app, when its downloading(before its installed), click on the notification that says it downloading(where it shows open/uninstall). Open the app and use it...Once your done using it, it should go back to the open/uninstall, open ADC2 from the notification bar, submit your review. After which it will uninstall. But when ADC2 closes you'll be at the application in the market and just click install.

    It is a contest by Google to spur development and it means tons of new apps will be flooding the market. All android users are judges for the apps. And we get to try them out. Pretty cool system.

    I've been trying this out today - found one good app (FlyScreen - a lock screen replacement that allows for multiple widgets to display while the screen is locked) - but I've found I have to go through several more pointless apps, and/or apps that are of no interest to me. A skip option would be nice, as I feel bad rating an app lower because I don't have a need for it (for example a twitter based app is not going to get a good rating if I don't use twitter).

    That's all. :)

    Thanks for the flyscreen gem. I will get that.

    FYI - click "menu" in the ADC app on app that you don't want and skip away. I have skipped many apps. ;-)

    I searched "flyscreen" and "fly screen" and didn't find the app. Any ideas?

    Some Apps I did download after I tried them. So I am not sure all apps follow that rule of thumb.

    Also here's a video of flyscreen -

    I come across an excellent app called Drocap , it basically takes screen shots of your phone and DOES NOT REQUIRE ROOT.

    You simply start the app , go to the screen to want to take a pic off and shake the phone. a notification then appears with your pic , So useful! I took a pic of my lovely British Home screen and a funny Comment i saw on the ADC2 comments Wanna see? :D

    Unfortunately it's not on the Market nor is the dev. I done a google Search and found a tweet which seemed like it was from the Dev saying it would no longer work with 1.6 due to the Exploits being no longer usable.

    Shame this app wasn't released months ago , this could have come in handy for those {like me} that don't want to ROOT their phones. I hope the DEV can make it compatible with 1.6.

    Carl C ;)

    I found the tweet from this guy here

    Why o' Why didn't we have this useful little tool earlier. Hey Maybe I'll create a very quick video review of it??

    It's really nifty , I really want this to work with Donut. We'll soon find out for ourselves if it does! :)

    ClipNote is the only app I have kept so far.. Well I already have WTD?! (which IMO should win in its section.

    It has .... :D

    Go to the ADC app and then press the home button..... You should hopefully then get a notification shortly after saying an app is ready to review like i did! My first app to review in the second round is ..... Xeeku Twitter :)

    I had to uninstall/reinstall it :p
    Seems like they have sorted the "click-it-as-it-downloads" trick :( I now have to hope it isn't protected :(

    I like the idea of Open Gesture.. Just not sure I will use it over Sense..

    It looks like the App may not have been Updated for the Droids Resolution , You can thank Google for that :rolleyes:
