The end of Apple‘s annual Worldwide Developer’s Conference (WWDC) also signals a slew of worthy applications that have been given the Apple stamp of approval with its Apple Design Award. Recognizing the best and most innovative iOS and OS X software, the awards are sometimes more of a marketing ploy for the tech behemoth than anything else, pushing its own products and programs. For example, this year’s award recipients seem to tick off several Apple-centered check boxes, such as having an Apple Watch app complement, using Metal on iOS (Apple’s graphic programming API), Force Touch Trackpad support and making innovative uses of in-app purchases. Despite the blatant self-promotion, there are noteworthy apps in the mix which are certainly deserving of the accolade. With 10 in the roundup (and two student winner apps), the recipients cover a variety of genres, with gaming apps, productivity apps and designing apps to name a few. Some notable gaming apps made the list, with the addictive and aggravating Crossy Road as well as the intense battle-centered Vainglory. Productivity gets a nod with the Fanstastical 2 calendar, and the uber popular Workflow app. Check out the entire list of applications over at Apple.com.
