2011 Best App Ever Awards Nominees Announced!

2011 Best App Ever Awards Nominees Announced!

Jan 3, 2012

The final nominees for the 2011 Best App Ever Awards have just been announced. This year saw a huge increase in the number of nominations placed and the number of applications nominated. The big change this year was the introduction of Android applications to the awards, with each category (other than the Best App Ever category) having a winner from each platform.

The Best App Ever Awards are the most prestigious (if we do say so ourselves) and longest running mobile app awards. Last year saw nearly 500,000 votes cast in the awards, and this year the goal is over a million. Here are a few more stats on this year’s awards:

2011 Best App Ever Awards, By The Numbers:

  287,643 nominations placed by users at the site
  7,243 different applications submitted for nomination
  1,692 different application are final nominees
  1,336 different developers have apps nominated in the awards
  109 app / game categories in the 2011 awards
  76% of the nominations submitted were for iOS applications, 24% for Android applications
  42 Gameloft app nominations, Gameloft leads the pack with the most of any publisher
  20 nominations per category (10 for iOS, 10 for Android)
  1 Best App Ever category winner (it’s iOS vs. Android)

The overall winner, the Best App Ever will be chosen in a no-holds-barred cage match between the 10 top Android and 10 top iOS nominees. Only one supreme app will reign supreme as the single best app on its mobile platform. Which will reign supreme? The Android nominees are listed below:
