We’re proud to announce the final nominees for the 2010 Best App Ever Awards. After over 87,000 nominations cast by you, the users, we now have our final nominees.

We launched the Best App Ever awards in 2008 to help recognize the best iOS applications, not just the most popular. This year we saw nominations for nearly 3,000 different apps, and it all comes down to this.

Voting is open now through 1/25. We’ll announce the winners at the 2011 Macworld Expo in San Francisco. We’ll have more information on that in the coming days. New this year, we’ve added a separate division for iPad applications. So in each of the categories you can vote for one iPhone / iPod touch application and one iPad application. And in addition to the individual overall application categories, the top
10 nominees overall are up for the award of Best App Ever.

Best App Ever – The overall best app of the year. Nominees are the 10 apps that received the most nominations overall
