Apple tonight officially announced the winners of the Apple Design Awards 2019. Recipients are selected based on what the company thinks are some of the best apps for various Apple platforms.

This year, Apple chose a total of 9 apps that work across iPhone, iPad, and Mac, with the winners listed below:
[*]Ordia - a one-finger action platform game.
[*]Flow by Moleskine - a practical and artful note-taking app.
[*]The Gardens Between - a puzzler in which players control the passage of time.
[*]Asphalt 9: Legends - a high-powered, console-grade arcade racing game.
[*]Pixelmator Photo - a powerful yet approachable image editor.
[*]ELOH - a puzzler involving shifting blocks to direct bouncing balls.
[*]Butterfly iQ -- Ultrasound - a CE-approved, FDA-cleared whole-body ultrasound app.
[*]Thumper: Pocket Edition - a heavy-metal rhythm game with impressive graphics.
[*]HomeCourt - The Basketball App - a coaching app with AI-powered shot tracking.
Apple plans to make a video of the Apple Design Awards ceremony available online in the near future, and it will be available on the Apple Design Awards website.

I like how Moleskine reset their App Store app rating after this was announced (likely to get rid of the overwhelmingly negative response to their subscription pricing).

Geez, on a mac these links open up either iTunes or App Store, besides having a window open in Safari already...

Wherever my feet take me…
Wow, you win the Apple Kitchen Sink if you win this.
(I know, the exposure is probably more important.)

I know, right? I could do without the Watch & AirPods, but I wouldn't mind the other stuff!

Kudos to everyone who won. I use Pixelmator a bit, and it's pretty good. I wonder what it would be like now with Pencilkit?
