Earlier this month, I judged the BeMyApp contest, in which teams of developers, designers and innovators make an app in one weekend. There were so many great ideas as well as great execution! It was absolutely amazing what a small team of 3-5 people can do with a weekend and enough caffeine. Below, you’ll find the presentation of and feedback for the winner of the contest: Deal Wheel. It’s an app that keeps tracks of all your local deals (e.g. Groupon and LivingSocial). It’s simple but powerful—at the basic level, it’ll remind you when a deal will expire. But what I appreciated most was that you could put deals you knew you weren’t going to use into a pool in exchange for a token. With that token, you could pull another deal out of the pool.
The Deal Wheel team talks about the app in the following video:
