    Default 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.

    Shazam is best ever AND most innovative? WTF....

    Shazam is great, but being realistic, it really isn't the best app in most people's opinon. Oh well, it's not my list. I would say Facebook would probably be app of the year for me.

    Too bad Cydia apps couldn't be included cause SBSettings is by far the best/most useful app by ever. I don't know how I could live with out it. Shazam is cool but how often do you use it. Once every blue moon. I use SBSettings 10-15 times a day.

    Airsharing is pretty useful though.

    While Shazam is very cool and must be using alien technology, I have yet to use in a "real world" situation. I would have to say an app you use every day or quite often would be the Best App Ever and for me that would be FaceBook right now.

    Fieldrunners is indeed a great game, but its actually a port from a mod from Warcraft 3 on the PC, like tap defense.

    What, no ''best sports app''?? Sportacular (in my opinion) is the best app ever too, I use it constantly everyday! Just when I think that app couldn't get any better, they release an update with even more cool features!! WAY too awesome to be free!!

    For the record, Shazam is kickazz... still blows me away on a regular basis, and absolutely Air Sharing rocks too!
    Praise the Devs! To each and every one of you who spend your time writing code and making apps for little or no profit... Its YOU that makes the iPhone great, NOT Apple!! From me to you, a million thanks!!

    i think its saying something when the "best app" is a free app.
    and also i think only one app that won was a big 10$ app so some times bigger isnt always better
