Vote 2008’s top developers in iLounge’s Readers’ Choice Awards! (Updated)

We want your votes!

This has been a huge year for iPod + iPhone third-party development, and we’d like to hear who you think did the best overall job. Our 2008 Readers’ Choice Awards will honor three different categories of developers:

2008 iPhone + iPod Application Developer of the Year
2008 iPhone + iPod Game Developer of the Year
2008 iPod + iPhone Accessory Developer of the Year

And we’d also like your pick for the year’s best new Apple media player, including iPods, iPhone 3G, and more. Each of the four questions offers a Write-in Candidate option if you don’t see your top pick listed—yes, write-in votes will be counted!

Vote today. The survey ends on October 29, 2008, and winners will be announced in the 2009 iPod + iPhone Buyers’ Guide on October 31, 2008. Thanks for your votes and best of luck to all of this year’s developers!

Your games developers is geared only to big-name developers. You should have an indie developer category. Demiforce LLC’s Trism is by far the most innovative game for the iPhone. Most of the games that you list under the game developer category are merely ports from other platforms. We should be rewarding innovation instead of ports of games that have existed for a while!

The Write-in Candidate option is there if you want to nominate Demiforce as the Game Developer of the Year, based on the single title it has developed for the iPhone. Please realize that there are hundreds of indie, single-game developers who could have been listed as candidates, and there was no way to list them all as multiple-choice options. That’s why Write-in is there—if a good developer can wrack up the votes to win, fantastic.

For what it’s worth, we really like Trism, are considering it as a candidate for game of the year, and would be happy to see Demiforce win if other readers agree with you.

Jeremy, I understand your point. It would be difficult to decide which indie developers to include and which to exclude. The contest is definitely worthwhile. I enjoy reading your app reviews, by the way! Thank you!
