Voting for the third annual Best App Ever awards is underway. The best apps of 2010 have been assembled and the sponsor 148Apps is asking for your votes to help choose the winners. Nominations for the Best App Ever awards began a month ago, and the competition received 87,138 nominations for 2,891 different apps. That is a three-fold increase over last year!
This year the competition includes the iPad and covers a range of categories, such as Most Innovative App, Best Publication App, Best Reference App and a variety of gaming-specific categories. Each category has ten nominees for the iPhone/iPod touch and ten for the iPad.
Voting begins now and lasts until January 25. Votes will be tallied, and the winners will be announced at MacWorld 2011, which will be held in San Francisco starting January 26. So point your browser to Best App Ever website and cast your vote for your favorite apps. While many of the apps, like Angry Birds and Instagram, are familiar, there are several gems you may discover for the first time.
