What do you think of the Android Developers Challenge Winners?

The Android Developers Challenge concluded yesterday and the winners of the cash prize and instant name recognition that come with it have been announced. Are you impressed or disappointed?

When the winners were announced yesterday, I was rather surprised. Some of the winners seemed like obvious choices, but other apps I never noticed claimed the top prize in their category. I even tweeted “Wow. Really surprised by the winners of the ADC2,” and got a similar response from several of our followers.

Reading descriptions on some winners left me further confused. There are already apps that provide the same functionality for several months now and are arguably better. Meanwhile, the basis of some apps just didn’t appeal to me at all. I’m going through the Market now trying to find some of the apps to test for myself and see what got everyone else excited. Not all of the apps are available for download in the Market, but take a look at the ADC2 Winners and tell us what you think.
