Apple Design Award 2008 Winners

Fame, fortune, and supersweet prize packages given to developers of the best OS X and iPhone apps.


The 2008 Apple Design Awards ceremony was yesterday, always an exciting part of WWDC. Awards were given to OS X apps as well as native iPhone apps that won't be available to schlubs like you and me until the App Store goes live in July.


Besides the prestige and in-your-facery of such a major award, the prize packages are pretty great too -- we're totally jealous. The OS X and iPhone winners get two 15-inch MacBook Pros, two 30-inch Cinema Displays, a 16GB iPod touch, an 8GB iPhone, a Premier Membership in the Apple Developer Connection, plus reimbursement for one person's WWDC expenses, including conference ticket, airfar, and hotel. Oh yeah, and one 2009 Apple Developer Connection Macworld Expo Exclusive Marketing Package, which we believe is a long way of saying they'll get to show off their winning app on the show floor at next January's Macworld.


The Best OS X Student Project winner, Axel Peju for his financial management app Squirrel, wins one 15-inch MBP, one 30-inch Cinema Display, a 16GB iPod touch, one ADC 2008 Student Membership, reimbursement for his WWDC expenses, and the same 2009 ADC ME EMP already fully typed out above. (Heh.)


And here are the winners, which all get our hearty congratulations.

Congrats to all the winners... they all deserve it!

PS, it's "finance" for the Student winner's app, not "fiance management". Haha. :)

Thanks Chris (and others) for noticing. I knew something looked off about that sentence... Ha!


I managed my fiance by making him my husband. It works!
