Apple Announces 2013 Design Award Winners
After the keynote event on Monday where OS X Mavericks and iOS 7 were announced, Apple also divulged the winners of its annual Design Awards contest to recognize apps that “raise the bar in design, technology, and innovation.” As in previous years, winners receive a nifty cube-shaped trophy with a glowing Apple logo and other prizes.
Among the winning iOS apps was Letterpress, a word game that debuted in the App Store last year and was created by Loren Brichter, the developer of one of the most popular Twitter apps in the earlier days of the App Store. Other winning games included Frogmind’s Badland, a physics game where you shepherd strange creatures around dangerous obstacles (see the full review and an extended gameplay video over at TouchArcade), and Vlambeer’s Ridiculous Fishing in which you, well, fish. (It’s more fun than I make it sound – see the review and gameplay video with the game’s creators at TouchArcade.)
Here are all of the winning apps:
