Categories and Prizes

To be eligible to win, you must be an active reader of this site and the tutorials or books must have helped you in some way to develop your app. Priority is given to subscribers, active forum members, and others we can verify are actual readers of this site.

Also, your app must have come out this year (in 2015), obviously.

Each app is eligible for every category but can only win one category. Ryan will be selecting the finalists for each category from ALL the submissions and then the judges will select the winners. :]

Grand Prize

  • Best Reader’s Game: Best game overall in terms of game play, polish, and graphics. Bonus points for GameCenter, tvOS support, etc.
  • Best Reader’s App: Best app overall in terms of usefulness, polish, and interface. Bonus points for Universal Binary, iCloud, platform advantage (taking advantage of iOS specific features), etc.

Honorable Mentions

  • Most Addicting: The App/Game that you can’t stop playing with.
  • Most Hilarious Idea: Its got that LoL factor :]
  • Most Surprisingly Good: The App/Game you didn’t think would be as good as it is at first glance.
  • Most Technically Impressive: The App/Game with particularly cool/impressive tech.
  • Most Visually Impressive: The App/Game that just looks really good!

All winners get a free PDF of their choice from our site – plus massive bragging rights! :]

How to Enter

If you want a chance at winning, here’s what you should do:

  • Eligibility requirements: Again, to be eligible to win, you must be an active reader of this site and the tutorials or books must have helped you in some way to develop your app. Priority is given to subscribers, active forum members, and others we can verify are actual readers of this site.
  • If you’ve ever submitted your app for review on the site in the past: You’re already in the running! You don’t need to do anything, Ryan remembers all! ;]
  • If you haven’t submitted your app yet this year: You can do so right here!

Note to be considered for this year’s Readers Apps Awards, you must submit your app before next Friday, December 11th. If you don’t make it, there’s always next year ;]

Best of luck to everyone, and stay tuned for the rewards announcements, which will be before Christmas! :]
