Announcing the 148Apps March Madness Contest

Posted by Jeff Scott on March 17th, 2009

Bracket busters, diaper dandies, Cinderella teams, sweet sixteen, great eight, final four - all terms you only hear in March. To celebrate the fantastic March Madness we're kicking off our first March Madness Contest. To join in on the fun, sign up for the CBS Brackets on Facebook and join the 148Apps Readers Group.

We'll have prizes for first and second place. As follows:

1st place overall - $30 in iTunes Gift Cards (US only)
2nd place overall - 148Apps T-shirt from AppTees

Please note, to enter the contest you must have a Facebook account and join the 148Apps Readers Group in the CBS Brackets app.

And if you want to keep up on the tourney on the go, CBS has just released the CBS March Madness On Demand app. It lets you watch every single game of the tourney when connected to a WiFi network and listen to audio over 3G/Edge. We'll see how it works, CBS has always had trouble meeting the demand for their web streaming during tournament time. The iPhone app uses the MobiTV network, so hopefully it won't have the same issues.

And even though I know that Perrin will likely kick all of our butts, 148Apps staff are not eligible to win but can join in on the fun.
