Congrats to the developers! I still think Procreate for iPad is the best-looking app ever.

Things 3 is a beautiful app and deserving of the award. But it's also the most likely win "Vaporware of the Year" award if they take another 4 years to make a significant upgrade like last time.

I'm surprised that Apple is citing a third-party email client (Airmail), and that Enlight is winning an award now - it's a nice app and I have used it a bunch in the past (nowadays I find I can do most of what I want with the tools in Photos, and I go out to Pixelmator [and now/soon, Affinity Photo] for more advanced tweaks). Its interface hasn't changed much in the past year or two, so why now? I'm not complaining so much as curious.

How quickly Darksky has fallen far, far off this list....

The hype train wore off
