    @SoulShading Well, I actually already gave all my reasons on all the previous Notebook giveaway :-) So I’ll just retweet the news ;-)

  • For me, those that actually respond to its’ users needs and with a user-friendly GUI is what I would consider a great app. It also helps if the developers provides good customer support because its one of the things I look at when buying premium apps. Graphics is a factor as well. I like polished apps because it makes me feel that the developers actually put time to make their product look good, apart from functioning well for its intended purpose.

  • @ZeroP1 krazedrag300 at gmail dotcom Two things makes a great application, Usefulness & Usability. It has to be of some use to me even if it’s just for entertainment value. Next is usability. It has to be at a level where it’s easy enough for anyone to use.

  • Margaret Smith

    Liked on Facebook (Margaret E. Smith) What makes a great application for me is ease of use and great graphics. Thanks so much. rickpeggysmith(at)aol(dot)com

  • Pat

    Apps need great graphics, ui, user support, and necessary updates, not gratuitous ones where users are sorry they updated. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Mahalo for the chance to win! Mahalo for your great website! @Blurcat4

  • @redbonegirl97 for either twitter or facebook, I did both. redbonegirl97(at)yahoo(dot)com Graphics, graphics, graphics. That is always key for me. Tiffany

    @miriama59 Great music and/or graphics. But first, please make sure a regular person like I can use it. I am not a techie. Make it easy and if not have a webpage where I can find support, etc.

  • Michelle Simons

    What makes for a best app to me is the graphics for sure. I have seen stick people apps that I am just not interested in to buy. @MCJunkie on Twitter .

  • @_mongoose on twitter, rikki co on facebook I need applications that are user friendly (maybe even user stupid for me! lol). I listen to a lot of music and download and save videos. Thanks buddhistmom at gmail dot com

  • @Songbirdeeee

    An application is only as good as its underlying concept. If the concept is not original or in some way unique then it won’t be worth very much. And original idea or a nice twist on an older idea will make for a great selling point and will please the users. Once the concept is covered then all the smaller, but still important details come into play. The graphics will really help out and a nice UI is a must. The instructions (if there are any/if needed) should be presented in an easy to understand manner and it would be preferable if not too many were presented at once. It is also a really good idea to make it such that the instructions can be revisited at any time in case the user opens the app and then doesn’t use it for a bit or another user tries to use it. Music is important based upon what type of app it is. The prompt question doesn’t state whether or not we’re talking about a game… In games, well suited music is necessary and the ability to switch to one’s iPod library music is a good idea since no matter how good your music for the game is, you can’t always please everyone’s individual taste. In none game apps, music may or may not be so necessary.

  • I like the graphics. I tweeted for you…@klundine

  • oskat

    A great application is one that works and doesn’t crash every few minutes! @oskat oskatontwitter [at] gmail [dot] com

  • chris

    great graphics and music! @sunshyne1977 christina.brundick at gmail dot com

  • Great giveaway. ReTweeted @portionforfox, Liked it on Facebook (Gio Mon). I think what makes a great application is one that has good market take up, provides a great user experience and utilizes the hardware to its full extent.

  • BD

    A great app is simple, fun, focused and usable; with a catchy name and one that any consumer should be able to pick up and understand what is needed. RT’d @gods_monsters. brentdgm [at] gmail [dot] com Happy Holidays!

  • @ahmedghassan Ahmedghassan(at)gmail(dotcom) Of course Graphics Design :)

  • Thanks for this giveaway. retweeted @anndreilla, Liked it on FB, Andrea velasquez. I think that a great app is visually appealing, polished, consumer’s oriented (one that I can love) and simple but with great features.

  • I would participate in the AppUp developer program to make games for new mobile platforms.

  • I believe that a great application is a usable and functional one. An app that provides smooth navigation, easy to use menus, detailed options and so on are a huge boost. Great graphics is always a plus, but what are graphics when the app can barely be used because it’s slow, buggy, glitchy and so on. Ability to balance out a good GUI with smoothness and quick speeds make a great app. Uniqueness and creativity play a a role as well. I love a company that can come up with an idea that is of their own and fun. Twitter Handle: @GadgetQueenn email: queen_ir3ne (at) yahoo (dot) com

  • Bessamy

    @bessamy Twitter A great app is told by replay value. Along with the right mixture of ease of use, sound, and graphics that all go together.

  • JCman7

    What I think makes a great application is one that has a good UI, it has to be clean and clear and give the user a sense of ease and quality. I want something that is simple and not to crazy in design. I think if you can make something user friendly then everyone will be happy. Graphics are important, people are visual and we like things that look nice, its human nature. You can tell when an application has had a lot of effort into it or it was just thrown together time is the key part in making something good.

    Tweeted: Liked to Facebook: As a user, a great app is one that first fills a need, has a short learning curve, and has sustainability for longer than a few days. Great graphics and sound are nice, but they are worthless if the app itself has limited functionality or is too difficult to use.

  • Kevin

    An user friendly interface and eye catching are 2 of the most important point that makes a great application especially for game. Game are actually made for having fun, time killing or stress releasing purpose, here is no point for a player to screwing their brain hard just to figure out hows & where the buttons is. And also, eyes catching graphic does keep player hold longer for a certain game! Lastly, a great music is needed too for enjoy the entire game period. Gaming is meaningless without music!!

  • Shannon

    What is important to me is the content and the ease of use! If I can’t easily use the app then there is no need to use it! Shannon Scott Shannyiphone (at) gmail (dot) com

    Applications that have a lot of eye candy can get your attention, and usually add to your enjoyment and experience. But a great application should have a UI that is immediately intuitive. I don’t want to battle with an app just be able to use it regardless of how much eye candy it has. If it’s a utility, it should make my life easier rather than add more clutter. If it’s a game/puzzle, then it should it should have a difficulty curve that challenges you to progress, but doesn’t frustrate you to the point of abandonment. @cjsbug cjsbug (at) gmail dot com
