Since running the PHPkitchen awards a little while ago, quite a few developers have written in to say thanks for the community’s tips and pointers regarding the best apps out there. I think it’s important to point out that many of the contenders that don’t have top votes in their category are still top quality applications, sometimes better than the most popular ones – in my opinion :-). Also, the term ‘best xxx’ is used as a title mainly because that’s what most people search for, but I think it’s appropriate to think of ‘top quality xxx’ because all the top scorers are winners.
Nevertheless, there are still many visitors who don’t know what has been developed by the PHP community in any given application category, so the ‘best of’ series can serve as an indicator here. If you have a particular experience with an app please mention it in the comments section as this will most likely be helpful for other readers.
As always, the PHP ‘best of’ series is made up of feedback by readers for readers, so please forward any suggestions for news apps I have missed out. There will be a permanent link in the right column to make this info easier to find.
