The Apple Design Awards recognize state of the art iOS and OS X apps that are well-designed, innovative, and take advantage of the latest technologies to provide an immersive, fun, and compelling experience. These apps set new standards in terms of interface design, system integration, rich functionality, and high performance; every year, Apple celebrates developers and their outstanding work by awarding them an Apple Design Award trophy and other special prizes.
After evaluating the “broadest set of apps possible”, Apple has picked this year’s winners with a dedicated event at Moscone West on WWDC 2013 opening day. We have compiled the full list of 2013 Apple Design Award Winners below.
