WWDC 2012: The Winners Of The Apple Design Awards

So, the keynote is done, and you think WWDC is over.

Not quite. It’s actually a week long event for developers, but all of the rest of us tend to just go crazy the first day — for the famous Apple keynote.

One of the annual events that takes place during WWDC is the Apple Design Awards (ADAs). This is a special event that recognizes the most innovative independant developers who create things for Apple devices — hardware and software. However, this time, only software (apps) won awards. So this morning, after the keynote, the ADA winners were announced.

There are many categories each year, and this year the four categories are: student, iPhone, iPad, and Mac.

Without further ado, here are the winners of this year’s ADAs, by category:


App: DaWindci (iPad) Company: Reality Twist GmbH, Mimimi Productions, Mediadesign Highschool of Applied Sciences Based: GERMANY

App: Little Star (iPad) Company: BiBoBox Studio, Dalian Nationalities University Based: CHINA
