Carphone Warehouse announced the return of the UK’s first major app awards to celebrate development and innovation in app technology, Carphone Warehouse Appys 2012. Public voting for shortlisted apps is open at www.appys.com and in Carphone Warehouse stores across the UK until 31 March 2012.
Photosynth, Microsoft’s free panorama photo app for iPhone is on the shortlist in the video/photo category so if you, like me are a massive fan of the app, head on over and show your support.
Over a thousand Carphone Warehouse staff from across the UK suggested their favourite apps in the first stages of nominations, spanning a wide range of subjects from Best Celebrity & Entertainment, to Best Food & Cooking, Best News & Weather and Best Games. The entries from Carphone Warehouse staff were debated by a panel of expert judges, who carefully selected the top five apps for each category to go through to public voting.
The winners will be revealed on 25th April, in a prestigious ceremony at London’s iconic Battersea Power Station which will be transformed into a futuristic world of apps. The red carpet event will be hosted by a special guest host, alongside celebrity presenters of the awards, followed by a night of music and entertainment.
Andrew Harrison, CEO of Carphone Warehouse said, “We are all very much looking forward to the Carphone Warehouse Appys 2012 and putting on another memorable awards show. The app industry has grown even bigger since the first awards in 2011 with new apps, new developers and new creative and genius ideas. We’ll be celebrating some of the best minds in the app industry and hope the Great British public get behind their favourite apps and vote.”
Public voting for The Appys 2012 is open today until 31 March 2012. To choose your winning apps visit www.appys.com or one of the 800 Carphone Warehouse stores across the UK.
