WWDC Apple Design Awards 2008

During the WWDC last week, Apple gave out awards to the best deigned iPhone Applications. There were five categories; Best iPhone Game, Best iPhone Healthcare & Fitness Application, Best iPhone Social Networking Application, Best iPhone Entertainment Application and Best iPhone Productivity Application. Below are the results and I will have to agree with Apple…all these applications look aweseome!

Best iPhone Game
Enigmo Enigmo 1.0 – Pangea Software, Inc.
Enigmo for iPhone is a 3D puzzle game where players construct mechanisms to direct lasers, plasma, and water to toggle switches, deactivate force-fields, and eventually get them to their final destination. Originally the most unique game that Pangea Software ever created on Mac OS X, the new iPhone version brings the concept to a whole new dimension by taking full advantage of iPhone’s Multi-Touch interface for dragging and manipulating puzzle pieces, zooming in and out, and operating game controls. With gorgeous 3D scenes rendered with OpenGL ES and amazing 3D audio produced by Open AL, Enigmo 1.0 for iPhone delivers a phenomenally engaging and addictive game play experience to iPhone and iPod touch.

I’ve had this great idea for an iPhone app but it looks like they beat me to it. Although my version requires running in the background. Basically it notifies you of tasks based on your geo location. Now since Apple won’t allow it to track you and can’t run in the background I assume you will have to open the app to check if there is something you need to do near a specific location. [Read more…]
