Top Ten Windows 8 Apps

The Creative Bloq App Generator Contest was sponsored by Windows 8 and was a chance for UK developers to be recognised for their excellent work. I was very pleased that my app Font Picker was one of the top ten winners, particularly because of the high quality of the other winners. Here are the all the winners of the contest.

Hi Richard, congratulations on being in the top 10 :) I'm the guy behind Study Planner it was so annoying I couldn't come to the awards evening how was it?

@Dominic I had a really great time. It turned out everyone who had been shortlisted had really won, so everyone was in a great mood. Well done on also being in the top ten. Hopefully we'll get a chance to meet at some future awards ceremony when we both find fame and fortune.
