Tekkie Tekkie Muna (Hackathon mula umaga hanggang madaling araw, tuloy-tuloy hanggang sa susunod na madaling araw), after the Blackberry Jam Hackathon, then soon the Bigas Hackathon on November 10 and 11, another Hackathon has shown its face.
SMART DevNet and WebGeek Philippines is aiming for Foursquare Hack Day Philippines to become the largest mobile app hackaton in the country. Dubbed as “Social. Location. Mobile. Connected” with an official hashtag of #4SQHackPH, they are in search for the greatest SoLoMo app to be held at SaDoce, 12/F Smart Tower 2, 6799 Ayala Ave, Makati on December 1.
Tekkie Tekkie Muna (Look straight into the computer, and titigang maigi ang premyo nila), have you heard of the BlackBerry Jam Hackathon – a 40-hour Blackberry app development competition where participants battle it out for top prizes like a Trip to Bangkok, Thailand for 4, 1 BlackBerry 10 DevAlpha, 4 BlackBerry 7 devices, 4 BlackBerry Playbook tablets plus consultancy from RIM.
What do they have to do? Just hack their way to a potential money-making BlackBerry app idea and present it to a board of judges from the BlackBerry community composed of Dave Patterson, Christian Besler, Cameron Vernest and William Yu.
Philippine BlackBerry developer group PinoyBBDev hosted the PinoyBBDev Hackathon 2012 last August 4 and 5. Almost 100 developers gathered from around the country and spent 35 hours to develop apps for BlackBerry.
Twenty-Two Teams accepted the 2 day hackathon challenge last Aug 4-5. Attendees from several companies, schools, and freelancers join forces to create 22 Blackberry applications using different platforms namely Adobe AIR, HTML5, Native C++, Android and Cascades.

I just downloaded WhatsApp Messenger on my Android.
It is a smartphone messenger which replaces SMS. This app even lets me send pictures, video and other multimedia!
WhatsApp Messenger is available for Android, iPhone, Nokia, Windows Phone and BlackBerry and there is no PIN or username to remember – it works just like SMS and uses your internet data plan.
