Macworld UK has announced the nominations for the iPhone & iPod App Award categories at this year's Macworld Awards ceremony.

Divided into two general categories, Entertainment & Lifestyle and Business and Utility, the awards represent the best iPhone applications of the year, according to the Macworld UK editorial team.

Mark Hattersley, Macworld UK's Editor in Chief said: "Last year, we gave the App Store the award for the best product of the year. And it's gone from strength to strength, proving to be a compelling reason to buy an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad over similar products. With roughly a quarter of a million apps to choose from, narrowing them down to the 10 best of the year was a tough call for the team, but with input from our sister title iPad & iPhone User over the space of 12 months we've narrowed them down to the very best of the year."

The nominations are as follows:

Best iPhone Entertainment & Lifestyle App
Clickgamer - Angry Birds
ALK Technologies - CoPilot Live
Art and Mobile - Quad Camera - Multishot
The Mill - Mill Color
WeatherPro - Weather Pro

Best iPhone Business & Utility App
LogMeIn - LogMeIn Ignition
FileMaker Inc. - Bento
Cultured Code - Things
Avatron Software - Air Sharing Pro
QuickOffice - QuickOffice Mobile Office Suite
