Quick Quiz

MTA App Quest registrants: twenty days to go! Take this one-question quiz for tips on what to do next.

How's development going? Are you still working on an app?

A: We entered the hackathon.

Awesome, but you're not done yet! Make sure to improve your hack, create a video, and look at what else is required for your hack to qualify for the virtual challenge. You must update your submission with the required items before the deadline.

B: Working on something, and plan to enter.

Great job, keep it up! 8.5 million daily commuters applaud you. Don't forget to submit your app by 5 p.m. Eastern on August 20, 2013. If you haven't done so already, start your draft today. 

C: Maybe. I've started, but not sure if I'll finish on time.

There are still 20 days left. You can do it! Even if your app doesn't have all the bells & whistles that you had originally imagined, we encourage you to enter it (as long as it works!). As per the official rules, participants must enter a "working software application that uses one or more of the MTA data sets or APIs available at, and includes the ability to update/refresh the data."

D: Maybe. I want to, but I haven't started.

Explore the quick-start guide and get some inspiration from our previous ideas & tips update. We've seen some slick apps coded at weekend hackathons. Make it like you're heading into a 20-day hackathon! 

E: No, I'm definitely not entering.

If you haven't already responded to our Customer Relationship Manager Megan Arend, please tell us why here. (Why are we asking? We'd like to help address any questions/concerns, and improve the competition.)
