The Evernote Devcup is our annual developer competition for designers and software developers. With the help of our online community, we will award prizes to the best products that integrate with the Evernote API. Participants will be working on building apps and services that effectively use features within the Evernote service.

Get started with the Evernote API Ideas for Devcup   Upcoming Devcup Meetups and Events

Submitting iOS Apps

Your iOS app does not need to be in the App Store. To enter an app that isn't in the App Store, create an Ad Hoc distribution for the devices that we are using for judging. Our UDIDs are listed below.

If you prefer to distribute your app using TestFlight instead of providing us with an IPA, simply upload a build that contains our UDIDs. All of our devices are registered with TestFlight.
