SUNNYVALE, CA, United States – March Apps Madness kicked off just a few weeks ago and it has been a fun competition. Each day, we’ve seen big apps go up against independent applications and the voting has been fun to watch unfold.
We’ve seen 32 applications divided into four categories go head to head in a competition that drew an amazing amount of votes, lots of interest from developers, and of course support from all those involved. In all, there were almost 15,000 votes registered for all apps over the course of the competition.
Thanks to all those who made App Madness a reality, from the developers that tweeted and blogged about their apps in the various rounds and most importantly to the the fans that voted day in and day out.
Without further ado, let’s unveil the big winner!
The winner of the 2012 March Apps Madness is Nextgen Reader!
