Today is the launch of the new Ovation Awards presented by Applause. This is a new way to showcase the best mobile apps of the year across iOS and Android. The Ovation Awards will be honoring 200 apps as finalists across 10 categories (10 iOS finalists and 10 Android finalists for each category). Once the 200 apps are selected there will be a popular vote, and then a panel of judges will make the final selections. It’s a little like a People’s Choice award - except for the final judging. :-) Check out this blog for details.
Help promote your favorite apps by going to http://ovation.applause.com/ (link no longer works) and vote. Use #OvationAwards on Twitter when you've finished voting.
I am helping out and promoting this event because I feel it is something that truly will recognize the efforts of the different app makers out there (http://ovation.applause.com/judges) . Awards coming from the Testing community is something different. I think it may be of more value than other awards to the app owners and developers as we know many of these apps inside and out.
Let’s make this a great way for mobile apps to get the recognition they deserve from the actual users!
