SAPI asks.....

How will you survive and thrive during the inevitable zombie apocalypse?

What should you have prepared?

What do you need to know when the walking dead come looking for brains?

How do you make your way in a post-apocalyptic world?


 

FURTHER INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Entrants must first gain a Zombie API key by completing a SAPI key request via developers.sensis.com.au
  • When applying for a key, entrants must work the phrase “Brains Yum Yum” into their application description.
  • Entrants who have been granted a Zombie API key must then create an app that integrates functionality from SAPI.
  • Note that the term “app” refers to any widget, website, application or program and can be built on any platform so it doesn’t have to be a mobile app. Go nuts! 

App must be publicly available for judges to access (eg. Android Market, Apple App Store, or Internet) by finish date to be eligible to win!
 
Entrants will be judged on the following criteria:

Originality - How unique is the concept.
Usability and Design - How good does it look and how easy is it to use?
Effectiveness - How well does the app prepare someone for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.
Backstory - Entrants are encouraged to share their development story via Twitter using the #sapihack hashtag.
SAPI Integration and Use - How well did the app integrate SAPI?
