This lets you build tiny little microapps and distribute them to a mobile client. The code runs on your server, but the UI runs on the device. The events are gatewayed back and forth.

The ultimate vision is to make a way for passive audiences into active participants.

We combined things we love: Mobile, Mechanical Turk, MapReduce, and Twilio.

Interesting concept. I haven't wrapped my head around what this is most useful for yet, but it seems like it has potential.

I played around with your API and I was actually kind of amazed at how easy it was to get going. (The sample apps helped a lot.) Writing a little bit of code, then right away seeing it show up in the app and user interactions show up in the console is really cool.

Imagine that they are more-functional notifications that can be broadly (rather than specifically) targeted?

What could we do better on the API? Were there widgets that you would like that are missing?
