Apple’s 2013 Design Award Winners Include Great Apps Like Letterpress And Evernote

Every year a few quality apps are selected to win the coveted Apple Design Award at WWDC. It’s a developer’s dream to be recognized by Apple for making great software, and the Design Award is the pinnacle of accolades in the Apple developer community. This year’s winners include some very popular titles you may have heard of, like Letterpress and the newest iOS version of Evernote.

Ironically, one of the apps Apple selected for a Design Award this year has been killed in iOS 7.

Yahoo Weather, a beautiful weather app that uses gorgeous nature shots behind minimal typography to give you the weather at a glance. Guess what? The iOS 7 Weather app does that now.

Another notable app is Letterpress, the product of famed and former Apple/Twitter designer Loren Brichter. If there’s any app currently in the App Store that syncs up with the look and feel of iOS 7, it’s Letterpress.

The other winners are Panic’s Coda 2, Ridiculous Fishing, WWF Together, ProcreateBadland, and SkyGamblers.

There were two student winners as well: Finish and mosaic.io.
