Developers Take On The Video App Challenge

The Mashery spot prize (GoPro HD Hero 960 wearable HD camera), went to Screen Jumper by Abraham Williams - a Chrome extension that, as you browse Twitter, recognizes movie titles within tweets and injects movie trailers (YouTube), movie ratings (Rotten Tomatoes API) and movie schedules of nearby theaters. To the point that I made earlier about vertical hackathons, Abraham (a seasoned developer) was exposed to the YouTube and Rotten Tomatoes APIs for the first time ever, and now has new platform knowledge and experience in his toolkit.
