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 hack technically interesting or difficult? Is it just some lipstick on an API, or were there real technical challenges to surmount?
Is the hack usable in its current state? Is the user experience smooth? Does everything appear to work? Is it well designed?
Is the hack practical? Is it something people would actually use? Does it fulfill a real need people have?
What potential does the hack have to attract angel investment or sponsorship to its next stage?
