Judging Criteria

  • Usefulness
    Does the hack target a specific audience? How often will people use it? Does it solve a common problem?
  • Originality
    Does the hack stand out or is it a generic application? Does the hack improve something that already exists or is it entirely new? What makes the hack better than another?
  • Technical Complexity
    Does the hack utilize emerging technologies? Does it use any of the sponsor APIs? Is it more than a conglomeration of APIs?
  • Polish
    Does the hack function properly? Is it complete, or you have plans to improve it in the future? If so, what would you change/add? Is the app well designed and appealing?
