2017 Apple Design Award Winners

Jun 14, 2017

Category: Tech

Every year the cream of the Apple App Store’s crop gets awarded one of the top accolades in the industry, the Apple Design Awards. Not only does the award help these sometimes obscure apps get a lot more love and attention from users – but it is a real feather in a cap of a developers or UI/UX designers. A lot of these apps – both the distracting and helpful ones – start out as modest little projects. Getting a top award from the design company means a lot.

This year there are some really quality picks. Looking to get a little bit better at organizing your email? Or maybe you’re trying to find a replacement for Candy Crush (c’mon now…that’s years old by this point). Whatever your itch, this year’s award winners will scratch it. Take a scroll through and see for yourself what the best and brightest of the App store have cooked up for Mac and iOS.
