Nominate And Vote For Asia’s Best Mobile And Web Apps

Know of any deserving creative web and mobile applications developed by Asian companies – or those that serve Asian markets – you think the rest of the world should know about? If you do, nominate and vote for them at the Top 50 Apps poll organized by technology startup community e27 and Singtel Innovation Exchange (SiX) now!

Asia’s Top 50 Apps

The Top 50 applications of the poll stand to be listed in the Asia’s Top 50 Apps Directory which will be distributed to 4,000 regional and local business attendees at Asia’s largest innovation conference, Accelerate 2010, and Singtel i.Luminate 2010, which takes place on Sept 22-23 2010 in Singapore. If an application makes it to the Top 10, the developer gets to present it to an audience of 1,500 technology and mobile industry movers and shakers – CEOs, CTOs, business and marketing people from the leading regional telcos – as well as vendors, and software and web developers at Accelerate 2010. The top 10 will also get free access and travel to Accelerate 2010 and given a 50-percent discount on demo pits.

Applications should be nominated based on three factors:

  • Technology Innovation: This includes creating open-source technologies, platform specific codes and device-based innovation;
  • Business Innovation: Simplified processes and services that impact product usage; and
  • Design Innovation: Ease of use, greater interaction.

The Top 10 will be judged by a select panel of experts. Voting closes on 31 Aug 2010, so do vote and nominate today. Results will be announced on Sept 1 2010.
