UPDATE: Thank you all for sharing your favorite ! We took the 10 that received the most votes and polled them on our Facebook page. We’ll be publishing the results later on, but, for now, a big Congratulations to the 5 recipients of our Prize: Kalyan Basetty, Mica Nickson, Azra Kapic, Matt Iden, and Nick Gentile!

We’ll be contacting you later today with your codes for  [steel] (), [steel HD] (iPad), and The META Calculator - brought to us by our friends at The Mobile Engineer. Congrats!

Last week, we asked our Facebook Fans to suggest the best Apps for architects so we could put together a list of the 10 Best Apps For Architects. But while a few great Apps got featured, tons of other great Apps got skipped. ArchDaily reader ArchNYC, for example, commented “how is morpholio, Paper, or i-Rhino 3D not on this list? they are incredible apps.” Reader Anna responded: “Agree 100%[...] ArchDaily should consider a second list.”

Well, you spoke, and we listened. We’re going for Round II. But, this time around, we want to know: What Great Architecture Apps Did We Miss?

And we haven’t even gotten to the best part. The folks at The Mobile Engineer, creators of our #9 App [steel], will give 5 lucky commenters a Promo Code – either for  [steel] (for iPhone) or [steel HD] (for iPad) – for FREE. Not bad, eh?

So, just register to let us know your favorite Apps (iPhone or Android) in the comments below!
