Is the hack technically interesting or difficult? Is it just some lipstick on an API, or were there real technical challenges to surmount? (Doesn’t apply to new hackers)
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 project free of major bugs? Is the user experience smooth? Does everything appear to work? Is it well designed? The UI/UX doesn’t have to be perfect, but if we’re having a hard time understanding the project, there may be a problem.
Is the hack practical? Is it something people would actually use? Does it fulfill a real need people have?
