TechCrunch Hackathon Most Popular APIs Hacks

After a 28 hour hack madness the TechCrunch SF Hackathon 2012 has finally came to an end. There were 151 submissions for this event - the most there have ever been!

TechCrunch had a signup list to submit your hack. I cleansed the list and found the frequency with some ruby code. Here are the top 5 APIs that were used by hackers to hack today.
