With nominations being open for just under a week, we have now received over 5,000 nominations in the 2008 Best App Ever Awards. Haven't nominated your favorite apps yet? Head on over to http://bestappever.com and get moving, nominations are open until 12/30.
This inaugural competition is the first iPhone OS Application achievement awards to recognize the best iPhone apps and games released in the iTunes App Store in 2008. The goal is to help publicize the very best apps available, not just the best-selling apps.
Nominations are still tight with it being a pretty open race in all of the categories as it stands right now. Especially so with the Best App Ever race -- less than 75 nominations separate the #1 from the #10 nominee.
