Nokia Lumia-Your Wish is My App gets renewed for another season on Indian television
The reality show Nokia Lumia- Your Wish is My App, has been renewed for a second season on Indian television. The show presents app ideas from regular everyday people. The first season saw contestants limited to those living in India, but the new season will feature people from all over the world who have the next big app idea for Windows Phone.

Last year, the show received 38,000 ideas, and this year Nokia is expected to look at 50,000 submissions. Ideas can be submitted by text, phone call, social media and through live events held at universities and colleges in the country. From that huge pile of apps, Nokia will trim it down to 30 that will compete for the grand prize of 1 million Indian Rupees ($16,000 USD) over 9 thrill packed, nail biting episodes.

The top 4000 app ideas will be made available to developers to turn into real life apps. In addition, the top ideas will receive help from Nokia in the form of technical and design support.

To enter your app idea, send a tweet with the hashtag #YourWishIsMyApp. Or, text to 5555 YWMA followed by your submission. Or you can go to the Nokia India Facebook page, click on the YWMA tab, and enter your idea. You can watch last season's thrilling final episode by clicking on the video below.

Alan thanks for the WP support. There has been far more coverage since you came aboard.

I don't believe I've ever heard of this commercial. It must have done well for it to be on again.

Haha... Alan is veteran Phonearena writer/editor.
I guess the global users of WP is making it kinda more noticeable now than it was 1 year ago.

this was only in India that too on a news channel

the shows finale was hosted by Shahrukh khan ... cheap analogy but he is kind of like brad pitt or tome cruise of India .. one of the biggest superstars in india.. also included was Priyanka chopra kind of like angelina jolie or jennifer aniston

both these actors have been official endorsers of nokia for quite long time..

one more thing Nokia is still quite big in india.. yes We have more smartphone ads from Nokia than samsung,apple, or any other brand..

BTW i also heard today about it for the first time.. but that maybe because i don't watch too much tv..
