Today, iLounge and Bowers & Wilkins are announcing the Quest for the Best iPhone App Contest, a chance for official iPhone developers to receive extra attention and win one of three amazing B&W Zeppelin speaker systems.
On July 11, the iPhone and iPod touch will officially gain the ability to run downloadable applications distributed through Apple’s App Store and iTunes Store. Hundreds of applications – games, business/productivity applications, and others – are in development, and iPhone and iPod touch users will want to know which are worthy of their immediate attention.
From today through the end of July 23, iPhone developers are invited to submit screenshots and details of their App Store-ready applications to iLounge’s Application Gallery, which will highlight as much new iPhone software as possible. Each Application will receive its own page in the Gallery, helping readers to learn about your product’s features.
Then, on July 25, iLounge editors will announce the top three applications from the pool of submissions, awarding each winning application a Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin (US$599) – a beautiful premium speaker system plus a $100 Apple Store Gift Card. Only App Store-published applications, available to the public as of July 25, are eligible to win prizes.
One winner will be picked from each of three categories: Games, Business/Professional, and Just Plain Cool. We may use the “Just Plain Cool” category to recognize an especially creative or well-executed program that doesn’t fall into one of the other categories, or we might pick a second game or business application that really impresses us.
