5th Annual Best App Ever Awards Launched

In late 2008, in response to then mounting chart pressure, we started the Best App Ever Awards to honor some of the best apps available, not just the best selling. At that time, and it’s ever more true now, high position on the top apps charts was thought of by many to be the only measure of success. We knew there were better ways to honor the best apps, and started the Best App Ever Awards.

Now in it’s 5th year, the goal of the Best App Ever Awards remains unchanged. Honor the best apps, even if they are not chart toppers. It’s with great pride that we open up this years awards for nominations.

The Best App Ever awards is the one of the most prestigious awards for mobile apps and games. Last year over 1,500,000 votes were cast in the quest to find the best. This year it’s back bigger and better than ever. Users can nominate their favorite apps and games in any of over 100 categories by heading to the app nomination page and choosing a category.

Nominations are open through the end of the year. After that the nominations will be tallied and the top ten iOS apps in each category will battle it out for the awards. In addition, the ten iOS apps that get the most nominations overall will fight it out for the title of Best App Ever.
