StudyBlue Flashcards nominated for Best App Ever Awards

I've been working for StudybBlue for about 9 months now.  If you don't know what StudyBlue is, it's a fantastic place for students to create online flashcards, study those flashcards, create quizzes from them, and track their progress.  In other words, its a product that makes students more efficient and effective.  


StudyBlue is more than a Web site, however.  It also produces native flashcard applications for iPhone and Android to allow students to study their cards on the go.  The goal for our company is to create a total user experience and we invest a lot of time, effort and energy into our application designs.  Apparently, that hard work is starting to payoff.  


We were recently notified that we were nominated for the the Best App Ever Awards.  While its not the biggest award or the best known, the interesting thing about it is that it is a user-driven award.  It means that one of our users nominated our app and other users will be voting on it.  In my mind this is one of the highest compliments StudyBlue could be paid.  After all, it doesn't really matter what anyone thinks but your users, and it seems that we're keeping at least some of ours pretty happy.  


If you are a student and use StudyBlue, please vote for our app.  There would be nothing more satisfying than knowing that our users think we're the Best App Ever.
