US [app] Design Awards Winners Announced
18 September 2015

Winners of the 2015 US [app] Design Awards have been announced.  Gold and silver winners have been awarded in over 20 categories covering B2B, Innovation, Community, Lifestyle, Marketing, Finance & mCommerce, Information and Health & Wellbeing. The awards provide a unique opportunity for all sectors of the industry and marketplace to engage and extend the design conversation and to celebrate the courage of both commissioners and creators.

design100 and [app] Design Awards Founder Mark Bergin said “the acceleration in the apps market continues unabated. In the past arms races have been about strength, domination and control. 

The digital economy is more about nuance; users will drop an app at lightning speed if it’s not on trend, not in the behavioural pattern of a fast changing world. Again we’ve seen long hall app brands innovate, come up with something astounding and take the challenge up to the new disrupters.
Apps are accelerating from smart phones to include machine to machine, web apps and ever more so connected devices.  The pace of the market is astounding and speeding up – congratulations to the market leaders.”

Silver winners include: Verie – Now you know, Best API – Verie, Inbox Messenger, Best App Startup - Inbox Messenger, Swingbyte, Best Connected Device and Wearable Tech – Swingbyte, join.me, Best Expanded Service or Application – join.me, eVoice iPhone mobile app, Business Operations - j2 Global, Azubu App, Entertainment & Leisure - Loic Argelies (Azubu), Memo, Best App Startup- Collectively / Macoscope, Yodlee, FinTech - Yodlee and Shoes of Prey, FashionTech - Shoes of Prey.

Gold winners include: Protocol Builder, Health - Biomedical Research Alliance of New York (BRANY) / Truth NYC, Google Translate, TravelTech - Google Inc, Handpick, Food & Drink - Handpick, Inc., MyOngaku, Family - Ongaku Learning / Compsoft, GEICO Mobile, Best Expanded Service or Application - GEICO / The Martin Agency and PageCloud, Best Dev Platform/Dev tools/framework – PageCloud.
