Ever tried to go to a Facebook party and found the tube lines were down? Our entry in the recent Facebook Developer Garage London Hackathon saves you the pain.
The hackathon gave us 5 hours to write a cool Facebook app that used the new Open Graph API Facebook recently unveiled.
TubeWarning (http://www.tubewarning.com) checks your Facebook events and two hours before an event checks the tube lines for you. If they are down you get a nice email telling you what the problems are. Nice, simple and it just works.
Mark Zuckerberg said to me the next day “I told David Cameron about your app this morning, and he thought it was pretty cool!”.
Cool indeed. Thanks Mark!
