NativeScript UpLabs Challenge

Show us how you would you Build screens for a functioning Mobile App for both iOS and Android.

The Instructions

A new and unique mobile app challenge is back! We are once again partnering with NativeScript to challenge you to build screens for a mobile app that looks great on both iOS and Android. Do you think you can take up the Challenge?


Last year's winner: JukeBox a music streaming iOS app with Nativescript by Yassine Zanina

The end result of your experience should be a functioning iOS and Android app. Have no fear though, as the NativeScript framework relies on CSS and an easy-to-use markup language to create cross-platform apps from one set of code! Plus, the app doesn’t have to be fully functional - at the minimum it just needs screens that look good and inspire others.


To make your life even easier, you can partner with someone who already knows NativeScript for this challenge. And, you can develop your screens in an easy-to-use browser-based environment, so there’s no messy system requirements or setup to worry about.


In exchange for your hard work, NativeScript is offering $3,000 in prizes(!) and we are extending the deadline an extra few weeks.


There is no specific theme so the world is your oyster with this challenge! If you need some ideas, you could consider an app that:

  • Provides a digital assistant or chatbot UI 🤖
  • Shows off how an insurance company might handle a claim 🚗💥
  • Gives bank 💰 or credit card 💳 companies fun and a new way to engage their users

You can also display the weather, use some fancy charts/graphs, create some cool data entry forms, build the next housing/hotel app...anything that looks good on a mobile device.
