How to make a great demo video

Aside from your app, your demo video is one of the most important things you’ll include in your submission! In fact, it’s sometimes one of the only things that judges review.

Although they are encouraged to, judges are not required to test each and every app. Therefore, it’s extremely important to demonstrate your app’s functionality in your video. That means carefully walking through your app’s features and showing how each one works.

You’ve already built an awesome second screen app, now show it off with a great video!

Partnering with Viggle to serve people better

Gatorade, McDonald’s and State Farm are proud to be sponsors of the Viggle AppJam and wish you the best of luck and creativity on this journey.

Since that humble start, we’re proud to have become one of the world’s leading food service retailers. Why? Because we focus on providing great service. Success has come from serving our community, serving our franchise owners and of course, serving our customers high quality food…
