Remember MoFo Hackathon we did in February? It resulted in Ikonica, a gorgeous app for designers that that ranked #1 in few Mac App Stores and had thousands of downloads within the first few days upon its launch.
Good news, we’re doing it again!
This time, Appricot is developing a product that will help teams, startups, entrepreneurs stay in the loop during product development phase. We are creating Loop: Mac app that curates the most important actions from the services like Dropbox, Bitbucket, Asana, etc. and displays them in a simple avatar based notification panel on your desktop.
MoFo Hackathon #2 has started at 2am PST and will continue for the next 48 hours until we finish the app and send for the review in the Mac App Store. Once again, we will spend the next 2 days working, eating, sleeping together (but separately) at the office and we will have Loop developed. Please follow our progress via Live Stream, Twitter or Facebook and give us your support.
