Categories and Prizes
To be eligible to win, you must be an active reader of this site and the tutorials or books must have helped you in some way to develop your app. Priority is given to active forum members and others we can verify are actual readers of this site.
Also, your app must have come out this year (in 2014), obviously.
Each app is eligible for every category but can only win one category. I’ll be selecting the finalists for each category from ALL the submissions and then the judges will select the winners. :]
- Best Reader’s Game: Best game overall in terms of game play, polish, and graphics. Bonus points for GameCenter, Universal Binary, etc.
- Most Addicting: The App/Game that you can’t stop playing with.
- Most Hilarious Idea: Its got that LoL factor :]
- Most Surprisingly Good: The App/Game you didn’t think would be as good as it is at first glance.
- Most Technically Impressive: The App/Game with particularly cool/impressive tech.
- Most Visually Impressive: The App/Game that just looks really good!
All winners get a free PDF of their choice from our site – plus massive bragging rights! :]
