Every year at Apple’s WWDC (World Wide Developer’s Conference), awards called the Apple Design Awards are given to, well, in Apple’s opinion, the best designed apps. But in this case, design does not only mean GUI, it means the internals too. They are the beast, all-around designed apps. And because the App Store is officially out for the first time during a WWDC, there were app winners too.
The iPhone winners were:
- MLB.com At Bat 2009
- Topple 2
- Tweetie | MacApper Review
- Wooden Labyrinth 3D
- AccuTerra (3.0 Beta)
I have used all of these, and I must say, Apple is very right. There are a few apps that came out after the awards that I think would have won had the awards not been given out until after their release. A congratulations to all of these iPhone winners, we really appreciate your apps and the work you have put into them.
The Mac winners are:
Again, I have tried all these apps, and they are great. Congratulations to the winners of the Mac Apple Design Awards, we appreciate the work you have put into making your apps so great.
I recommend checking out all of these apps, not just because they won awards, but because they are great apps that really deserve notice. Especially the student winners (Fontcase and Wooden Labyrinth 3D), who not only create amazing apps, but also must manage schoolwork.
