Judging Criteria

  • Novelty
    Is the hack more than just another generic social/mobile/local app? Does it do something entirely novel, or at least take a fresh approach to an old problem?
  • Utility/Function
    Is the hack practical and something people would actually use? Does it fulfill a real need people have?
  • User Experience
    Is the hack usable in its current state? Is the user experience smooth? Does everything appear to work? Is it well designed?
  • Overall Impression
