[prMac.com] Vancouver, Canada - ComboApp Marketing and Publishing agency's Holiday App Awards have finally come to a close. We'd like to thank all of the participants of this year's competition as well as the enthusiastic voter base that made the 2010 Holiday App Awards a truly memorable event. After a month of lively competition that saw over 500,000 app lovers cast votes for their favorite winter apps, champions in seven specific categories as well as an overall Grand Prize winning App have emerged.
WeeWorld's WeeMee Avatar Creator claimed ultimate victory this year as The Holiday App Awards Grand Prize winner! Pushed on by an extremely active userbase, that app pulled away as the frontrunner to win this year's grand prize part way through The Holiday App Award's competition period and never looked back. In recognition of this accomplishment, WeeMee Avatar Creator's developers - WeeWorld - have won a full Sales Boost app marketing package courtesy of ComboApp. Furthermore, applications that came out victorious within each of The Holiday App Award's seven nomination categories have each won a full Post-Launch app marketing package from ComboApp as well. First place apps are listed by category below:
* Best Children's Christmas App: SOS Penguin
* Best Christmas Game: Wood Puzzle Christmas HD

With so many users coming forward to vote, The 2010 Holiday App Awards have allowed us to discover the true App Store market leaders in a very real way. More than half a million customers can't be wrong, and it's no surprise that the most successful apps this winter season were those that created and maintained a very close and dynamic relationship with their users. Aside from spirited fun, the real lesson to take away here is that developers who never stray too far from their product's users tend to be rewarded in the long run. Our Grand Prize winner -WeeMee Avatar Creator - is a shining example of this maxim in full play. Spurred by loyal customers this application gathered over one fifth of all the votes counted this award season. On that note, we'd like to congratulate this year's winners. ComboApp is already looking forward to hosting the 2011 Holiday App Awards!
