To celebrate its sponsorship of the People’s Choice Award, The Carphone Warehouse is running a Facebook competition for fans to vote for their favourite app. Visit facebook.com/Thecarphonewarehouseireland to vote.
Every day until November 3rd, 2011, fans have a chance to vote for their top three apps. The first time you vote, your name is entered into a draw to win a Playbook, the much awaited new tablet PC from Blackberry. You can vote three times a day on Facebook and again on Twitter by tweeting the hashtag #CPWAppys, saying which app you want to win.
Apps on the run
To coincide with the launch of the People’s Choice App, there will also be a number of events happening across Dublin city commencing Monday, October 24th.
