For the last several months, devs who entered the Small Biz App Showdown have been busy engaging their social networks to promote and gain attention for these new Apps.com apps. We saw all kinds of tactics used, from daily emails to their customer base, to on-air radio appearances, to joining exclusive #SmallBizAppShowdown #QBOChat. While the votes rolled in, the apps were also judged on their quality of integration, innovation, and market impact. Those criteria, combined with the vote tally, their apps.com app card ratings, and the number of connections to QuickBooks Online subscribers, were used to select the 10 finalists.

Today, we are so pleased to announce our finalists (listed in no particular order):
