2009 Design Award winners

As a part of the ongoing Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple has announced the winners of its 2009 Design Awards. The Best Mac OS X Student Project award has gone to Pieter Omvlee's Fontcase, which manages fonts in an iPhoto-like interface. The first of four Leopard Developer Showcase awards belongs to Marketcircle's Billings, described by Apple as having a simplified interface that exposes elements only when necessary.

Also collecting Mac awards are Pico and Sofa's Versions, a Subversion client; Cultured Code's Things, a task management utility; and lastly Boinx's BoinxTV, which handles live video production.

iPhone winners include Elias Pietil's Wooden Labyrinth 3D, the Best iPhone Student App, and Intermap's AccuTerra, the Best iPhone OS 3.0 Beta App. The latter is used to track hiking and biking trips, and exploits not only GPS reception but the new firmware's in-app purchases, which can be used to buy extra maps. Developer Showcase titles include atebits' Tweetie client for Twitter, and ngmoco's Topple 2, a tower construction game. Also taking home Showcase awards are At Bat 2009, and Rogue Sheep's Postage, which creates electronic postcards with overlaid filter effects.

    I wish they'd put some of these designers to work on fixing the Safari 4 window. Extreme ugliness. Odd, because Safari 3 was nice-looking.

    What's wrong it? It looks fine to me.
