It's all very well, but where are:
1) Series 80/Communicator applications
2) Freeware apps
3) Shareware apps that don't choose to have Handango take their money

In other words, it's a valid slice of Symbian OS action, but all a bit blinkered.

Thumbs down

I think "People's Choice Award" is more correct. Users select application what they like and not that payed more money to Handango for advertisement.

Check "People's Choice Award" results:http://www.handango.com/ViewPlatform...&productType=2
