“Congratulations to all who made the shortlist and who won an award. Thanks also to our sponsors Carphone Warehouse, Nokia, O2, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, iMobile,, Tapadoo, Furious Tribe, Airport Genie, Alternatives Digital, and 3e FYI,” says Des Doris, event organiser.
“Once again The Appys celebrated and rewarded some of the best and most innovative apps available for smartphone, tablet and Facebook users,” says Doris. “The future is mobile and apps will continue to play a huge role in the continual development of the mobile industry. It’s great to see how innovative and creative the Irish app industry actually is.”

Future apps
“Apps will evolve from what we know them as today. Obviously gaming apps will still be huge but future apps will become intelligent pieces of software capable of better organising people’s lives.
In the minds of the most adventurous app developers, this is just the first generation of technologies that we will wonder how we ever lived without,” says Stephen Conmy, event organiser and editor of Digital Times.
