tech reviews Updated: Nov 09, 2009 21:40 IST

In a bid to source the talent of Indian developers, Facebook held a three-month nationwide contest for the best social networking applications. The Facebook Developer Contest India began in July and the results were presented in two categories — apps that integrated Facebook Connect and regular applications.

In the Facebook Connect integration category, Muziboo, an audio sharing platform for musicians and podcasters, was declared the winner. Muziboo is site where only self-composed music can be uploaded and shared.

The second prize in this category went to Green Mango, a website that provides a directory of services available in the unorganised work sector, like electricians, domestic helps and plumbers. In the regular applications category, the first prize went to multiplayer word game Grabbler, that’s built along the lines of Scrabble and has a grid consisting of 144 cubes (12x12).
