As we bid farewell to 2011 and greet 2012, we always like to take a look back and see which apps really stood out over the last year. There’s never a shortage of amazing apps to discuss, the hardest part of this post is simply narrowing down the options to something manageable! We put out a call to all our contributors and Twitter followers and asked for your favorite apps from the past year. The votes are in and the results were loud and clear.
Before we begin, let’s go over the rules. The idea here is to take a look at apps for which 2011 was significant. Perhaps they were released in 2011 or had a totally overhauled new version that blew us away. For instance, in last year’s post, Transmit 4 was a clear and easy choice. However, this year Transmit 4 won’t be on the list. It’s still an amazing app, but 2011 wasn’t really that significant in the Transmit story. Now that you get the idea, let’s jump in and take a look at some awesome apps that made big waves in 2011.
Well, the end of 2010 is almost upon us! It’s been a fantastic year of technology releases, and announcements – not just in our Apple bubble, but across the whole industry.
For me personally, my iPad has changed the way I read, the iPhone 4 completely revolutionised my appreciation of screen technology, and I finally got around to purchasing an SSD (the verdict is in – they’re astounding).
A few weeks ago, I published a few thoughts on what I considered to be the Best Mac Software of 2010, but there’s a whole lot to look forward to over the coming year.
Whether you’re stoked about OS X Lion, excited to try out the Mac App Store, or on the edge of your seat about the iPad 2, 2011 is going to be an action packed year for Apple users everywhere.
But what’s the one thing that you really can’t wait for? Let us know in our weekly poll, and we’ll be extra sure to bring you plenty of news and coverage around that particular event next year!
I wanted to take this chance to show my appreciation to everyone who reads Mac.AppStorm, and wish all our readers a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Whether or not you receive a shiny new Apple gadget as a gift this holiday, I hope you have a great few days away from the hustle and bustle of technology.
We have plenty in store for 2011, including the official launch of Android.AppStorm and Windows.AppStorm, as well as countless more reviews, how-tos, roundups and news! I hope you’ll join us on the journey, and am looking forward to sharing everything we have lined up with you.
Thanks for reading, and have a wonderful holiday.
