This week, Apple held an annual ceremony to honor what the company thinks are the very best apps for the iPhone, iPad, and Mac from the past year.
Apps selected to win an Apple Design Award range from Fantastical, a popular replacement to Apple's own Calendar app, to "Crossy Road," a popular and beautiful iPhone game. There were also several apps made for students and kids, including an app for children that uses creative ways to teach kids the alphabet.
University students from Brazil made "Jump-O," a simple, minimalistic game where you are a circle in a world full of squares.
The design of the game looks pretty basic, but it's surprisingly engaging with five-star reviews in the App Store. You can download and play it for free.
This beautiful puzzler takes advantage of Apple's latest technologies to create impressive 3D effects.
The $2.99 game features over 80 levels that each present their own challenges, and it has amazing reviews.
Here's what Pocket Gamer had to say: "Simple to the point of beauty, and beautiful to the point of becoming a work of art, this is a game you won't want to win, because you won't want the experience to end."
