Samsung and the Interactive Digital Media Programme Office (IDMPO) announced a joint call-for-proposal for the development of educational TV apps for the Samsung Smart TV platform and ecosystem. This will provide opportunities for the local developer community to innovate and create rich and interactive education apps for the Singapore audience.
Starting from 26th September, the call-for-proposal will extend over a period of four weeks and will end on 31st October 2011. Interested developers are invited to attend the Call-for-Proposal briefing at 6pm, 26 September, at Genexis Theatre, Fusionopolis.

The call-for-proposal will increase the choice of educational apps for Samsung’s Smart TV ecosystem and these apps will be made available through the Samsung Apps store, the world’s first application store for the television. More than 900 apps – designed specifically for the TV – are now available in over 120 countries with a monthly average download of more than 140,000 apps. As a continuous market leader, Samsung Smart TV provides the perfect mix of rich content, rich experiences, and convenience to consumers. Much more than just a connected TV, Samsung Smart TV creates an entirely new way to view television through Smart Hub, Smart Design, and Smart 3D functionality.
