Although the Apple App Store has only been around for almost 7 months, the fine folks over at 148apps.com have put together something creative called: the “2008 Best App Ever Awards”. This allows you to nominate the iPhone apps and games you love from over 30 awards categories.
A few of the award categories are: Most Innovative App, Most Useful App, Best Free or Ad Supported App,
Best 99 Cent App, Best iPhone WOW App, Best Productivity Enhancer, Best Productivity Killer, Best Feel Like A Local App, Most Innovative Game, Best User Interface… and of course “Best App Ever”. (A complete list can be found here)
You are allowed 1 nomination per app, per category and nominations end December 30th. Winners will be announced on January 7th, 2009 at the MacWorld Expo.
Here is how they will come to recognize the “Best App Ever”: “Once all nominations are totaled, verified, and calculated, we’ll take the top 5 nominated from the site and combine those with 5 nominations from the list of bloggers, developers, and industry people we have been contacting about these awards. That will give us 10 nominations for each category. In addition, the 10 apps that get the most votes across all categories will compete for the title of Best App Ever.”
