And the Appscar goes to? With awards season in full swing, it’s time to honor those pieces of mobile tech that fill the starring role on smart phones: Apps. From Angry Birds to Facebook, and Kindle to Netflix, we want to know who you think should be named the Best in a variety of categories (full list below). We’re accepting nominees in 16 categories, including News, Games, Social Networking, Travel, and more.
Here’s how to nominate an app: To add your favorite app to the list for possible consideration, simply add a comment below. Or you can tweet to @laptopmag with #Appscars. Or you can even leave us a comment on Facebook.com/laptopmag.
The nominations will be open until Thursday, February 3 at 10:00 a.m. Then come back on Friday, February 4 for our first award voting: Best Sports App. Voting will start at 10:00 a.m. and run until Monday at 9:00 a.m. Every business day thereafter will be another award open for voting until 2/28 when you will vote on the Best Overall App, just in time for the 83rd Academy Awards.
