Apple has announced the 2013 Apple Design Awards winners at WWDC. These awards recognize apps ‘that raise the bar in design, technology, and innovation’ and there are some superb selections this year.
The awards cover iPad, iPhone, Mac, and student entries. Right at the top of the winners list is one of my all-time favorite iPad apps, WWF Together – a winner in the iPad section.
Other notable winners include:
Letterpress: The popular, fun, and innovative word game from Loren Brichter, the creator of Tweetie and the official Twitter app – in the iPhone and iPad category.
Procreate: The popular painting app used by so many great iPad artists – in the iPad category.
Evernote: The feature-rich and powerful notes app – in the Mac, iPhone, and iPad categories. I have to admit, this one surprises me a little. Much as I love the power of Evernote, I’ve never thought of it as a design leader.
Yahoo Weather: I guess their recent revamp went over well with Apple. A winner for iPhone and iPad.
Finish and mosaic.io: The two student winners both sound impressive.
