First ever Android Network Awards winners announced

The Android Network Awards have come to an end and the official winners were announced tonight on the AndroidGuys podcast. By popular request we will also reveal the runner up in each category tomorrow.

When the polls finally closed we calculated over 43,000 votes casts. I think the group of winners does a pretty good job of representing some of the best apps that Android has to offer. Keep the site bookmarked, because it will be getting several updates this week. We will also be posting new information about the next time we decide to hold a similar event.

The best way to view the awards is from your Android phone. Go to and you can click on the QR codes to link you directly to the Market.
