San Francisco, CA – Today, 148Apps announced the call for entries for the third annual Best App Ever Awards, which recognize practical, creative, technical, and whimsical achievements in iPhone and iPad applications and games. Submissions are now being accepted in all 32 categories.
Created with the goal of building public awareness of the very best apps available, not just the best-selling apps, the Best App Ever Awards has a broad set of award categories covering both apps and games. The categories focus on the quality of the app design, the overall usefulness, and the fun factor.
Created by 148Apps, the 2010 Best App Ever Awards are expected to greatly exceed the interest of last year’s competition, which received over 300,000 votes for nearly 2,000 different apps. The Best App Ever Awards are the original iPhone OS Application achievement awards to recognize the best iPhone apps and games released in the iTunes App Store.
New this year is a separate division for iPad applications in each category. When nominated, iPad applications will automatically be split into the proper division. All app nominations must be submitted online at the Best App Ever site before December 31, 2010. Finalists will be announced on January 2, 2011 and will include the top ten nominees in each category and each division. Voting for these finalists will run through January 26, 2011.
The top 10 nominated iOS apps overall will compete for the title of Best App Ever. Winners in all categories will be announced at the 2011 MacWorld Expo in San Francisco.
