Here are the 8 apps Apple chose to highlight this year

From “Apple honors eight developers with annual Apple Design Awards” posted Monday:


  • Darkroom, a shining example of a high-end mobile editing tool.
  • Looom, looping hand-drawn stop-motion animation.
  • Shapr3D, the app will use the LiDAR Scanner to automatically generate an accurate 2D floor plan and 3D model of a room.
  • StaffPad, converts handwritten musical notations into digital sheet music.


My take: Some of these seem chosen less for their utility or gameplay than as showcases for Apple-only technology.

    Shapr3D is very cool, but a bit pricey.
