Make My House is finalist here, but Make My Home was finalist in my mail, so which to make?
We are short on time.
I know its holiday season so I am not getting reply of my mail, but its very urgent, some body please confirm it from Kristin or Dixons.
Please tell me date/time when some official will be online so that I can clear doubts about SOW, which I can submit only after app name clarification.

Hello Pinigames,

According to contest rule (Home Innovation App for Dixons):
"There will be limited access to the Dixons data feed to phase one contestants and fuller access to these assets for the six finalists selected for Phase Two"
Please send info regarding this as our app architecture depends on this.

Hi Kristin,
Mine too.

Since the Dixons api is in development stage, I have a suggestion:
It'd be nice if the Dixons api is similar to that of Etsy's.
JSON & JSONP should be used instead of or along with XML, since JSON is also used by major api's like Etsy & Twitter.

Another suggestion is:
using 'reserved' members, such that they to not break current api implemented code & allow expansion without incrementing api version.


I noticed you are in direct contact with our marketing department. Thank you for your feedback.

Hi All,

We Wish each and everyone who has been selected. All the best.

I think XML retrieval is great and must option, as we can use the data's the way we wanted
