We had an overwhelming response to the competition, so a massive thanks to everybody who took part! Entries used Pusher in a number of ways including simple notifications, realtime analytics, live blogging, realtime geographic information sharing, chat and commenting, social media data integration, mobile and web app interaction, and gaming. There were some really great entries and it was very hard to make a decision on a winner.
Our theme for this competition was improving user-experiences by layering on realtime engaging functionality. So our winner is the application that demonstrated the biggest improvement by adding some realtime awesomeness to their app.
… and the winner is… Freedcamp!
We really like the way Freedcamp (a superb Project Management app) becomes so much more engaging by adding a simple realtime layer. The notifications inform you of new information and are a good way of starting conversations. Tasks can be added and then refined though realtime discussion. We especially like the use of presence to show who’s online, so you know who currently active within a particular project.
