Announcing our TVHACKFEST Mashape winner…

We would like to congratulate the PlayAlong team for winning the Mashape category at the recent TVHACKFEST Hackathon @ Moscone Center West hosted by Apps World!  Here’s Jason Townes French talking about their game PlayAlong and how he used the Trivia API in Mashape.

According to Jason, he has more games in store for us, and he’s looking to add more Mashape APIs in them :)  Congratulations again PlayAlong!

We would also like to recognize the following teams that incorporated/conceptualized Mashape APIs in their hacks:

  • Metamaps.cc/StoryGraph is a discovery platform with awesome graph visualization. In this video, Ishan Shapiro explains what Metamaps is, and how Mashape could be integrated in.
  • ConnectedKiosk uses a QR Code API in Mashape to connect mobile phones with ads shown on the kiosk e.g. a kiosk showing a restaurant allows a passerby to book a reservation by snapping the QR code which then opens to OpenTable.
  • Movie Night is an app that helps people find movies to watch using a fun game system. (The team ended up using Mashape’s auto-generated libraries and not the Mashape proxy – we’re just glad we can help ;))
