Winners 2013

life in the wombThe winners of the 2013 Appys have been announced. Congratulations to Redwind Software and The Science Picture Company for “Life in the Womb”, the Grand Prix winner of the Appys 2013. Life in the Womb is a stunning visual guide to pregnancy exploring your baby’s amazing journey from conception to birth. Using a combination of illustrations, animations and interactive 3D features Life in the Womb beautifully illustrates these moments and milestones through the 40 weeks of pregnancy.

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 Travel & Tourism App for Hailo, and Best News and Media App for Sky News.

“Congratulations to all who made the shortlist and who won an award. Thanks also to our sponsors Glaxo Smith Kline, Communicorp Digital, HTC, Sony, 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.
