The App Planet “Best of Show” Mobile Application Award Competition
GSMA Mobile World Congress 2010
The App Planet “Best of Show” Award recognises the most innovative, compelling and creative mobile application – business or consumer – published by an exhibitor at the 2010 Mobile World Congress (MWC10).
From social networking applications to industry-specific vertical applications for business, to applications for education, using the camera, motion sensors, GPS enabled or other features, the awards judges will be looking for a breakthrough in technology and the creation of a new level of mobile application experience for users on mobile phones.
The judges, who will remain anonymous, will visit each exhibitor that has entered the contest, to demo the entered application, on Monday, 15 February and Tuesday, 16 February of MWC10. Judges will not identify themselves. Judges will confer at the end of both days and will select a winner to be announced on Wednesday, 17 February 2010.
