Apple has historically doled out annual awards to those third-party app developers that it believes have created the best apps and games over the past 12 months. Now, Google is launching its own take on app awards with the debut of what it’s calling the “Google Play Awards.” But while familiar in concept, Google’s version will tweak the formula somewhat from Apple’s version.
While Apple’s annual awards are announced at year-end just ahead of the holidays, in order to present a group that made waves during the past calendar year, Google’s award winners will be announced at the company’s I/O conference in May.
According to Google’s announcement, the program will feature five nominees across 10 categories, and these are now showcased in a special collection on Google Play.
Questions for discussion:
1. Are you an Android or an iOS user?
2. Is it possible that these App Awards are just a ploy to advertise and make money from users?
