Opera Software, the company behind the popular Opera web browser, is challenging developers to come up with a properly good Opera Unite application. Not just one, one Opera Unite application per week. Each week Opera will give the developer of the best Opera Unite application an award consisting of gift certificates to online retailers. The value of these gift certificates is equal to a new mobile phone or a Nintendo Wii.

“It is time to put your game face on. Opera is calling on creative developers everywhere to try their hand at the latest challenge on My Opera: the weekly battle for the best Opera Unite application. With prizes awarded each week, along with the international glory of being featured on My Opera, participants now have an opportunity to share their talents with the community at-large,” said the challenge issued by Opera Software.

The competition goes something like. You have a whole week to come up with a decent Opera Unite application. Friday is the last day when you can submit your application. To do so you need only sign into you’re my Opera account and upload the application. If you do not have an account, perhaps now would be the best time to create one. It will not cost you a thing to create a My Opera account; there are no charges attached to using a My Opera account. Over the weekend the Opera team will go over the apps and on Monday it will announce who won the gift certificates.

Community Manager with Opera Software, Espen Andre Øverdahl, comments: “There are a lot of talented developers who are looking for ways to share their work. Opera Unite is out in beta, and we are ready to invite developers to submit new Web applications. This new My Opera challenge puts a spotlight on the creative people who work hard to make Opera Unite applications more fun, more useful and simply better designed.”
