  • Winners: 2008 Best iPhone App Ever Awards


    The winners of the Best iPhone App Ever Awards have now been announced. An incredible 98,190 people cast votes for their favorite apps in 34 different categories ranging from business apps to games. The categories, Most Innovative App and Best Productivity Killer were extremely popular with voters.

    The competition is put on by 148Apps, and its founder, Jeff Scott says, "The goal of the awards was to help publicize some applications that people may never have seen. Some of the best apps have never been featured on the iTunes front page or in an iPhone TV ad, yet they deserve recognition and publicity for the great work the developers have done."
