The Winners of The Appys 2012 have been announced

The winners of the 2012 Appys have been announced. Congratulations to Hailo, the Grand Prix winner of the Appys 2012. Hailo is an iPhone and Android app that allows users to get a taxi wherever they are, whenever they want. All it takes is two taps on your iPhone or Android Phone. Users then pay cash or card, with no hidden fees.

This year’s awards received over 300 entries and was opened up to entries from social media apps, tablet apps and Cloud apps. Other notable winners include Best Banking App for AIB, Best Retail & Coupon App for Done Deal and Best Entertainment App for Sky+.

“Congratulations to all who made the shortlist and who won an award. Thanks also to our sponsors Vodafone Ireland,, Newstalk 106-108, Furious Tribe, Tapadoo and Alternatives Digital,” says Des Doris, event organiser. “The quality of this year’s shortlist was astonishing.”

“Apps will evolve from what we know them as today. Obviously gaming apps will still be very popular but apps are now 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.
