    So I was debating adding a contest to office basketball. Basically the first few people to get 25 (or a different number) of hits in a row and prove it could message me. Then I would pay pal or send them a prize or something.

    It sounds like fun to me and I would like games to do that, but I wanted your input.

    So good idea? Stupid idea? How many in a row would be fair but hard, and what sort of prize or amount would interest people?

    Sounds cool.... I haven't played the game yet, but adding something similar would be cool. Could always build a feature into the app, when you hit X in a row, a notification pops up that you can enter.... have the app send an e-mail to a box, and say you will pick however many people out of said e-mails every week or what not to win some sort of prize. This would be even better if the Palm App Cat allowed gifting of apps and/or credits to purchase apps (keeping it in the family you know).

    I like this idea a lot.

    Yeah, I was thinking something like that. I'd LOVE it if I could gift out apps....that way when I have the full version complete I could give out free copies to people like you suggested. I've started working on a method to handle it all, but didn't want to spend the time on it if their wasn't any interest.

    Office basketball is free so check it out and let me know what you think a fair score would be. I would want it difficult so its a reward for skill and not a random drawing only. Gotta reward the skill!

    Well crap, thats no good. A new update just went out this morning so I wonder if something got messed up. Could you orange click on the icon and tell me what version it says you have? It should be 1.0.2 or 1.0.3.
    EDIT -
    Just cleared and downloaded again and I did not have any crashing problems. P.M. me and we can get it figured out!

    Neat idea. Don't think I would accomplish it, though - 5 in a row is about the best I've done.

    Ok, so there is apparently a issue that some rare users will get with the 1.0.3 version where it crashes on startup. Kel was kind enough to do some trouble shooting with me and I have submitted a new version 1.0.4 to palm that should remove the crashing. Unfortunately it also temporarily removes the score saving. Hopefully they accept the update quickly.

    I just installed the app as well..... when I hit start, the app closes. I have restarted the phone, uninstalled, reinstalled... Sprint Pre 1.4.5, every other app I have runs fine.

    @OldSkool - I have found a issue that will affect some pre's and have submitted an update to palm to resolve it. Hopefully they will accept the update soon! And I'm super sorry for the problem!

    Cool, and no worries, this stuff happens... I will download when the update is up. Please post in this thread (as I am sure you will) in case I don't notice the update.

    I got 34 in a row yesterday and emailed the code, but never have gotten a reply yet

    update has been working fine..... best so far was 10....... really 34 and 38?????

    Maybe I missed it but figured replies wouldn't come out til the contest ends (isn't that tonight?). Sorry I have been super busy this week and haven't been keeping up very well.
    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    haha I was going to say 20 but with scores like those maybe 30 should be the score to reach. Great game and I love the idea for a contest.
