ok, I recently learned how to program Facebook apps. Now I am looking for some cool ideas to test out my skillz.

The first one I am thinking of is a pub crawl/scavanger hunt ... something where you solve clues on facebook that lead you to a bar that has a clue in it... you take the clue from that bar and use it to unlock the next clue which leads to the next bar, etc etc... and the first one to reach the final bar wins...

Trying to come up with interactive ideas that also include the REAL WORLD.

Any ideas?

how about a version of hang man involving a closet, curtain rope, and genitals?



seriously, the scavenger one sounds kind of interesting, but would have very limited appeal based on geography.


a web-based scavenger hunt might be better?

I actually am looking for things that will be limited by real world geography and interactions... so that isn't a problem. The app isn't meant to be a mass market thing, just something fun and local.

It needs to be viral...include interaction between friends and incentives to communicate and spread the word. For instance, in your pub crawl app, allow friends to send free beers (virtual of course) to others to get them to join the crawls. And have a tournament style option.

Good idea. The viral nature of the app could be getting your friends to join to donate skin grafts.

How about an ap that lets you preemptively tell people you don't want to be their friend?

With cell phone cameras being so prominent maybe something that involves a picture scavenger hunt?

Picture of pack of matches from the Irish Pub
Meter man giving a ticket
Hot drunk girls on 2nd Street
Picture taken with the hobo at the bus station
Picture of a certain pic at the art museum

All local stuff, you get the idea

Then use valid entries to fill in slots on a bingo, connect four slot or just to track the progress and winner gets to ass a random item in your apartment or whatever.

That's all the work I do for free man. Now where's my REP biatch?!?!?

How about an app, where you trick people into clicking the link by telling them its a cool app, but instead its really just a popup add that gets you money to keep down the costs of running CP?

I remember the days of old, when I was not constantly spammed by ridiculous applications posting shit on my newsfeed.

Someone willingly writing a facebook application invoked anger.

Ah, I get that.

BUT the point is I want to write an app that isn't some crap nonsense but a REAL WORLD fun activity. Not mafia vampires of the old kingdom. or whatever bs is out there now.

Did you come up with something?
I think some sorta application that makes you the GM of an NFL team would be pretty good. I think the applications that are very popular on Facebook involve simulations such as Farm Town or Farmville.

I am actually on the final stretch of one right now... should be done in the next 2-3 days. I will post it here for testing when it hits BETA.

Anybody out there ever make a facebook app? I am having adevil of a time getting the thing to publish properly. The new stream API is kicking my ass.

exact issue= stream.publish() posts to users WALL but not into their news stream... even with extended permissions allowed.

Any ideas?

God I hate all that crap. I just want to occasionally chat with ACTUAL friends, not send imaginery drinks to somebody who added me to their list because we once passed each other in the fucking hallway back in 1980.

I want you to make an app that reaches out and slaps the people that whine about something every day...in the face.

How about an app that blocks apps from appearing based upon some set of criteria? like no games or those stupid fucking send a drink/gift/etc app

The apps I am making have real world uses. I.E. setting up scavenger hunts, pub crawls, progressive dinners.. etc etc...

I am with you on the annoying "virtual" games... if you send me a drink, I want a real god damn drink!

I've got like 100 requests I've never looked at. The only ones I really pay attention to are friend requests.
