Android Network Awards voting begins August 10

Android websites came together in droves to create the Android Network Awards, a concerted effort to honor the best and brightest in Android applications. The list blossomed from 5 websites – all based in the United States – to 30 websites, with members representing nations in Europe and Asia.

Androinica.com is to happy to announce the categories and nominees of the inaugural Android Network Awards. Voting will open Monday, August 10, putting much of the power in your hands to determine which app is best in each category.

Below is the list of Android apps that users will vote for in an open poll. I can already hear some of you yelling, “But what about……” because you don’t see an app that you enjoy. Please be aware that we will have a write-in ballot for each category, so users can still vote for any app they feel was left off the nominee list.

Stay tuned to the ANA Twitter Feed for more updates and information.
