The 2021 Apple Design Award Finalists

Nice selection of apps and games from Apple. Some of the apps on the list that I’m familiar with: 1Password, Carrot Weather, Craft, Nova, Brief, (Not Boring) Weather, and Universe. Not one but two clever weather apps. Nova is the only app on the list that isn’t in the App Store.

My favorite inclusion, though, is Poolside FM, under the category “Delight and Fun”. There’s a lot of “delight and fun” on this list of finalists — again, Carrot Weather and (Not Boring) Weather — but Poolside FM’s entire point is delight and fun. As I wrote back in September, “To team Poolside: 🍸.”

Update 10 June: The winners.
