Hackathon Results: Using Sencha Touch 2.2 Theming to Win Prizes!

On May 11, 2013 Team Fig Leaf Software decided to attend a MoDevUX Hackathon.

The goal of the Hackathon was to produce a mobile app that had something to do with finance. Participants received bonus points for developing apps for Microsoft Windows phones, as well as using various APIs, and/or adding VOIP/Voice/SMS communications to an app using the Twilio API.

Team Fig Leaf Software wanted the app they created to have the following features:

  • Look and feel like a native Windows Mobile phone (as well as be compatible across a broad range of other mobile devices)
  • Integrate voice/sms features from Twilio
  • Calculate currency conversion based on the current exchange rates via a third-party API
  • Link to a back-office database that would help facilitate matching compatibile requests
  • Translate requests and messages into different languages via the Google Translate API
To learn more about the strategy behind creating this app, as well as the final results of the Hackathon visit Steve Drucker's blog!

Feel like trying out the app? Visit http://webapps.figleaf.com/wallet on your mobile device or by using Google Chrome on your PC (note that the Twilio features are disabled as it was only a test account).
