Was a challenging problem solved? Is the hack technically interesting or difficult? Is it just some lipstick on an API, or were there real technical challenges to surmount?
Is the project unique and original? 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 applicable in the real world? Is the hack practical? Is it something people will actually use? Does it fulfill a real need?
How far has the project come? Has progress been made? Is the hack usable in its current state? Is the user experience smooth? Does everything appear to work?
Does the finished project have an interesting look? How user friendly is it? Is it well designed?
