As the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) begins to wind down and draws to a close this week, Apple has just revealed the 12 winners of the Apple Design Awards (ADA). The goal of the ADA is to recognize and promote outstanding developers who do incredible work. The focus areas of the ADAs should be design, innovation, delight, impact, interaction, and even inclusion. Some of the 2021 winners include some returning favorites like CARROT Weather and newcomers like Pok Pok Playroom.
“This year’s Apple Design Award winners have redefined what we expect from a great app experience, and we congratulate them on a well deserved victory,” said Susan Prescott, Apple’s vice president of worldwide developer relations. “The work of these developers embodies the essential role that applications and games play in our daily lives, and serves as a perfect example of our six new award categories.”
ADA winners typically bring bold, creative, and distinctive ideas to life through their apps and games. These award-winning titles inspire not just other developers in the community, but even the folks at Apple.
