ADC2: What Are Your Top Picks so Far?


The winners of the Android Developers Challenge 2 are scheduled to be announced later today so I wanted to do a last minute poll.  As we know, the criteria each app is judged upon is based on four topics: Originality of concept, Effective use of the Android platform, Polish and appeal, and Indispensability. What are your thoughts so far on the titles you were able to spend some time with?

Which apps have you enjoyed testing the most? What are you looking forward to being released on the Android Market? Which apps do think should win ADC2, based on the criteria mentioned above?

This author is very excited for the Grooveshark app. Grooveshark is an on demand music streaming service which also allows users to upload their own music to a personal online library. Based on my experience testing the app submitted for ADC2, Grooveshark offers a seamless interface with fast load times and will be a very welcome competitor to the upcoming Rhapsody and Spotify Android apps.

Let us know your top picks in the comments below!

    Thanks Pauli for promoting your app.

    I think Plink Art has a good chance (recognize paintings).

    Also, lifestyle has a couple of nice ones.

    My own app is PlinkArt, so obviously I'm up for that. But I think I had most fun with a simple little puzzle game called Mazeness. Cute retro graphics, and a some amusingly harsh feedback when you make a mistake. Good stuff!

    Screebl is freaking awesome on my Hero. Got the real thing from market after I judged, and haven't looked back. Liked Swift and Decaf too.
