App discoverability continues to be a real issue. Â With the fast churn of apps in the App Store, an app has only a few weeks of promotional life in it before it’s largely forgotten. Â There are a few things developers can do to fix that, but those things may not work for most apps. Â That’s why we think it’s important to archive these great, best apps from even just a few months ago. Â They may have been forgotten by most, but we want a way to remember them forever.
We’re proud to announce the launch of a new site, dedicated to archiving the very best in mobile apps, the App Hall of Fame! Â We hope it will become the source for finding the very best of the best apps, long after their initial promotional buzz has died down.
With a voting process loosely modeled after the Baseball Hall of Fame, the App Hall of Fame will induct 12 new apps every month. The eligible apps are those that have been in the App Store for at least 6 months. Â Initially we’ll be focusing on iPhone/iPod Touch apps, but we’ll open it up to iPad apps soon. Â Next year? We expand further to cover other platforms.
