Explore the finalists!
We invite you to look into the finalists and try to decide who you would give the award to. For example, in Mobile Apps category you might have already read about Backway.ME on our blog, but did you ever try out CodeAnywere? It is a tool that will allow you to login with any computer or smartphone, and all your servers (FTP, SFTP and Dropbox), files, everything is waiting for you.
Olimpijac is an iOS and Android game you could get for free from the respective app stores. It was build as a quiz that helps you wait for the Olympic Games in London to start. The games have, obviously, passed, but you can still play the game! Taksiko is an application used for getting a cab, but currently you can only use it if you need a cab for Belgrade, Serbia. If you need help with your finance, you can try out Toshl to track your expenses. This mobile app is available on four platforms (Symbian and Windows Phone 7, next to the obvious iOS/Android).
This is a short overview of the finalists in only one category, but you should take some time and see who you would vote for the winner. Pick a category and explore the websites/apps, especially the ones you are not familiar with yet! You might find a new favourite here. 🙂

Classical Web Fest Statuette is the award every category winner will take home after WebFest.Me Awards ends. The statuette is made of the predominantly yellow colored metal on the black marble base.
