About this event

Compete in the iOS8 Swift Hackathon by HP IDOL OnDemand on [topcoder]:

Apple says that "iOS 8 is the biggest release for developers since the introduction of the App Store. It opens up new areas of iOS, allowing developers to extend the reach of their app content and functionality. It includes over 4000 new APIs to enable amazing features and capabilities."

We've taken a look at some of the upcoming features and we think that App Developers are going to have a field-day integrating IDOL OnDemand with Swift to create amazing Custom Actions, cool new Widgets for the notification center, and most of all, we're excited for the new Documents extension capabilities.

With all this power at your fingertips, we say "Go BIG, or go home!!!"

We want you take a little more time than usual for this challenge. We're giving you 30 days to figure out how to transform the way users interact with their iPhone with IDOL OnDemand, and we urge you to create an unbelievable experience with your new app. Remember that sometimes it’s the small things and what goes on under the covers in your code that make the biggest difference to how a user interacts with their phone, so don’t underestimate the value of great user experience over excessive front-end functionality.

IDOL OnDemand is a complete solution for bringing extensive data analytics to your app and for augmenting your mobile solution using REST APIs.

Through our Early Access program, we’re exposing the capabilities of HP IDOL (Intelligent Data Operating Layer), the world’s leading on-premise human information processing engine, as a managed solution to deliver a broad selection of web services to developers.

The true power of IDOL OnDemand is evident when you start to combine the APIs. Consume IDOL OnDemand Indexing APIs to index your unstructured data from social media, mobile devices, CMS, Google docs, Dropbox, email, SharePoint or other sources. Once indexed, analyze and augment your content, using IDOL OnDemand APIs such as OCR, Sentiment Analysis, Extract Entity, Face Detection, Barcode Recognition and Text Extraction. Finally, leverage IDOL OnDemand Search APIs to find what you need and shine light on dark data with advanced search options such as Find Similar, Query Text Index, Find Facets, Clusters or Terms.

Will your app make the device an afterthought, with an experience that is so natural, the user forgets they’re actually using a phone?
