The Catchy team created Catchy as the final thesis project in their undergraduate Computer Science program at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands.
Rumor has it that the Catchy app was such an irresistible hit that they had the whole committee standing around playing Catchy as they defended their thesis (...a happy end to a theoretical discussion on assumptions concerning initial accelerations).
You will notice that the thesis is dated June 2012, so if you called Catchy the original SMTH you would not be factually inaccurate.
Which one is installed on my own phone? In the choice between SMTH and Catchy, I go for the game that the science geeks play.
I divide my time between Radboud University Nijmegen and Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. My research focuses on multimedia retrieval techniques that exploit speech and language and focus on human interpretations of meaning. I am particularly interested in internet video, in networked communities, and crowdsourcing techniques. Lately, I've been noticing how difficult it is to imagine life without search.
