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?
Is the hack technically interesting or difficult? Is it just some lipstick on an API, or were there any technical challenges to surmount when building it?
Is the hack usable in its current state? Is the user experience smooth? Does it work as the creators say? Is it well designed? Our judges will see and/or want to use your prototype - so make sure it works!
Is the hack practical? Is it something people would actually use? Does it fulfil a real need that people have? While you are not required to prepare a business plan, your app should have an audience identified.
