Apple recognizes Mac and iOS apps with 2012 Design Awards
By Lex Friedman
Apple on Monday handed out its annual Apple Design Awards to developers behind the best Mac and iOS apps of the year. The company looked to award those apps that were well-designed, state of the art, and innovative—and available for sale in the Mac or iOS App Stores.
The winners on the iPad side were Fifty Three’s Paper, an innovative drawing app; GameCollage’s Bobo Explores Light, an educational science book for kids; and Fingerlab’s DM1 – The Drum Machine—an advanced vintage drum machine simulator.
Finally, Apple recognized two student-made apps: From (deep breath) Reality Twist GmbH, Mimimi Productions, of Mediadesign Highschool of Applied Sciences, came DaWindci, a parachuting game for iPad. And from BiBoBox Studio, Dalian Nationalities University came another iPad app, Little Star, an interactive book for children.
