Kansas City team works to build iPhone app in 24 hours

For most of the city, today is a normal day. There are errands to run, people to see, and things to do. What they don’t know is that there is a group of about 100 local developers and designers that are gathered together in teams, working to build a complete application in only 24 hours.

These teams are competing in a hackathon, sponsored by KCITP as part of the Compute Midwest conference, which was held on Friday, 11/9/2012. The goal is to build the best app in 24 hours, with prizes ranging from iPads, to Macbook Pros, to other prizes that are still unannounced. Read more about KCITP at http://kcitp.com.

iGotcha One of the apps that are being worked on today is iGotcha. The team is made up of Igor Kantor, Jason Dunney, Michael Beesley, Dustin Seal, and Chris Morris. According to Igor, iGotcha is designed to “blur the lines between online and offline worlds”. iGotcha is an iPhone app that is going to encourage more social interactions and encourage you to vary your routine and do something new.
