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:
The Macworld Awards 2010 will be on Thursday 24 June at The Northumberland, a beautiful new venue in Trafalgar Square, right in the heart of London. Tickets are available at www.macworld.co.uk/awards/book.
The Macworld Awards is one of the biggest events in the UK Mac calendar, recognising the products and vendors that have made a significant contribution throughout the past year. A Macworld Award is considered a benchmark of excellence throughout the industry.
"We've been hard at work on the awards ceremony for months now and the award ceremony on 24 June is going to be a night to remember," added Macworld's Mark Hattersley. "We take it very seriously" added Mark.
