Today, Real-time mobile question and answer service Opinionaided is releasing the people’s choice winners of 2011 SXSW’s most talked about mobile apps. Opinionaided is a free application that allows consumers to use their iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad to get advice and opinions in real-time.

Over the past few years, a variety of pundits have declared ‘winners’ right after SXSW. Opinionaided decided to bring a little democracy into the process and open it up to their users for feedback on what the people thought was hot in Austin this year.
