Apple Awards – MacFamilyTree 10 Featured As "Mac App Of The Year"

There are two especially important prizes for developers in the Apple cosmsos. The first is the "Design Award", normally given directly during the yearly WWDC – the second is the open-ended "App of the Year" competition. Those chosen for this reward by Apple as exemplary for their inspiration, innovation, and high-value products can more than pat themselves on the back without fear of feeling self-indulgent. After all, there's an exceptionally large amount of competition on the App Store. As with the last two years – there are several different categories for this year's awards. Per each hardware platform (Mac, iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Apple Watch), there's an "App of the Year" and a "Game of the Year". Apple also featured 5 additional apps of significant cultural influence on the awards podium. Thus, out of hundreds of thousands of available apps, there are 15 winners.
