Every year I look forward to the World Wide Developer's Conference, and with it the winners of the Apple Design Awards. Here's a brief roundup of this year's winners.
First, Panic's Transmit was awarded "Best Mac OS X Tiger Technology Adoption." If you often use FTP to transfer files and you haven't yet given Transmit a try, you owe it to yourself to do so. Transmit 3 combines great features like .Mac sync, Automator actions, Spotlight favorites and even a Dashboard widget with a beautiful and very Mac-like interface. This really is a great utility. Read C.K.'s thoughts on Transmit from last month.
Next, Delicious Monster's Delicious Libray was awarded "Best Mac OS X User Experience" (now that's an impressive sounding category). It's a very beautiful and useful database application for storing and sorting information on your media collection, including DVD's, CD's, books and video games. Track items you've loaned out with iCal and Address Book and (my favorite feature) use your iSight camera to scan product barcodes. Very cool indeed. Read about the other winners after the jump. Scott took a look at Delicious Library back in April.
