During December and January, The Unofficial Apple Weblog is soliciting your nominations and votes for the best products for Mac, iPhone/iPod touch, and iPad. We'll start with nominations in a category, and then tally your votes for the top-nominated products a few days later. The winner in each category receives the highly-coveted title of TUAW Best of 2011.
In the next category for the TUAW Best of 2011 awards, we want to know what you consider to be the top iPad utility app of the year.
Before you enter your nomination into the comments at the bottom of this post, please be sure to check that the app you're thinking about is listed in the utilities category in the App Store.
What's in this category? Apps like the Photon Flash (US$4.99) and Skyfire ($4.99) Web Browsers, iHandy Calculator HD Pro ($0.99), Living Earth HD ($1.99, on sale for $0.99), Air Display ($9.99), and 1Password Pro (on sale for $8.99).
There are thousands of additional apps in the utilities category, so let us know what you think is deserving of the Best of 2011. Leave your nomination in the comments below. Voting starts soon!
