Rudy Huyn, a Windows phone 7 developer, has challenged himself to make a Windows Phone 7 app from scratch to finished in 30 hours (including sleeping time).Â All he needs is an idea.
If you have an idea you would love to see made real (and which of course could realistically be made in 30 hours) Monsmartphone would like you to drop it in their comment section.
I am hopping over there right now to contribute my idea â€“ an app to find your parked car, which does not use anything as silly as GPS, which does not work in indoor parking garages in any case, but works by taking a picture of the general area, and sets that as a live tile for the app.Â The app will only have one button â€“ to take a new picture, and display the old picture. If a developer want to monetize it, they can sell location-based ads for the shops in the area, sent by toast notifications, and of course make millions (or at least tens).
Rudy of course is not planning to make millions â€“ he is giving the app away free. He is starting coding on Saturday 12th, so he needs your idea before then.
Drop your own idea at Monsmartphone here.
Thanks Fabien for the tip.
PS: If anyone else wants to make my app, it would save me many hours trying to find my car each Saturday 🙂
