#62: Makes it More Huggable


Today we take a look at the 2014 Apple Design Award winners, and discuss what lessons we can draw from the winners to apply to our own apps. We consider the importance of polish, creating atmosphere, and delivering “surprise & delight.” We talk about business models, building apps that are resistant to cloning, and how app design can contribute to engagement and word of mouth advertising. Apps discussed in this episode include Monument Valley, Day One, Cinemagraph Pro, Threes!, Blek, and Yahoo News Digest.
