Paper is the winner

This is the week of Apple’s 23rd annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Francisco. 5,000 people from 60 countries paid $1,600 each to attend and tickets sold out in less than two hours.

The winners of the Apple Design Awards (ADA) have been announced. I would post a picture of the ceremony but photographs and bloggers are banned from WWDC sessions.

The winner of the ADA for an iPad app is: “Paper.”

In the first two weeks after the release of this app, 1,500,000 people downloaded Paper and the company claims 7,000,000 sheets of Paper have already been used.
