I’m a big fan of the Best App Ever Awards. The motto and philosophy of the awards is this:

This year an astounding 496,000 votes were cast for apps by users around the world – and produced a winners list that lives up to the goal and includes a lot of apps that are not the usual suspects coming away with awards. Here are some notable winners in the iPad division:

The categories focus on the quality of the app design, the
overall usefulness, and the fun factor.

Created by 148Apps, the 2010 Best App Ever Awards are expected to
greatly exceed the interest of last year’s competition, which received
over 300,000 votes for nearly 2,000 different apps. The Best App Ever
Awards are the original iPhone OS Application achievement awards to
recognize the best iPhone apps and games released in the iTunes App
Store.
