You’ve probably noticed an increase in the number of questions about APIs in the Community over the past number of weeks. We have too, so we’re delighted to be bringing back the Weekend Design Challenge and want to see what sort of data-driven designs you come up with.
- The challenge will now run from today until Monday
- To enter the challenge post a screenshot/screenshots of you design in the community
- Bonus points for including your Thunkable Project file too
- The winner will be the person with the most 's on their entry.
Your Challenge this week
This week the challenge is to design an app that uses one of the following Image APIs:
|Giphy||Get all your gifs||apiKey||Yes||Unknown|
|Lorem Picsum||Images from Unsplash||No||Yes||Unknown|
|Pexels||Free Stock Photos and Videos||apiKey||Yes||Yes|
|PlaceKitten||Resizable kitten placeholder images||No||Yes||Unknown|
|ScreenShotLayer||URL 2 Image||No||Yes||Unknown|
You can come up with a completely new design, but you can also try to replicate the design of existing image-based apps.
