Remember when phones were for actually, er, make phone calls? There was a time when your phone just had your contacts on it, and maybe a few really fuzzy pictures. I think we can all agree that making calls is not really the device’s long suit anymore.

After all those amazing teeny tiny phones (remember Nokia 3310? Ah...good times!) came the smartphone boom, which actually changed it all. Apps, movies, pictures and music all compete for room – and it's overwhelming. Whether you're an old hand at Android or a complete rookie, finding the best apps in the content labyrinth of the Aptoide App store can be a challenge. The sheer number of apps is daunting, even for savvy heavy users.

Just imagine - if you browsed Aptoide and clicked on every single app every second, without stopping, it would take over 20 days to see them all. Whoa...


So, what can we do to cut through the noise of apps and bring you the most innovative, exciting and jaw-dropping apps, you may ask? Without further ado, we present to you Aptoide's first-ever Aptoide App Awards!

Here it is ladies and gentlemen. The crème de la crème. Look no further, search no more: these will be the apps that most people will swear by. If you’re looking for good stuff you’ve come to the right place.

In the week that the tech world meets at Web Summit, the best technology conference on the planet, we want to browse the internet to find and reward the cream of the crop of the Portuguese android talent - and of course, make all these finest apps available worldwide on the Aptoide app store.


The winners will be announced on November 8th at one of the coolest rooftop venues in Lisbon - TOPO Martim Moniz, so if you're in Lisbon come grab a drink and celebrate with the top leaders in the mobile scene - all while enjoying one of the best views in town.

As always, the early bird gets the worm, so if you'd like to come celebrate with us make sure to register and guarantee your spot as space is limited.
