Apple Design Awards go to Lara Croft Go and an anatomy app

At WWDC, Apple has announced its Design Awards, going to 12 apps that it believes represent the best the iTunes store has to offer.

Square Enix

Another round of apps and games has been honoured at WWDC with the annual Design Awards, scooping up trophies for the best design and ingenuity present in Apple's app store.

It's the 19th year the awards have been up for grabs, and the light-up cube trophy has gone to some quiet achievers. Medical education app Complete Anatomy was awarded for its excellent performance and attention to detail, while writing app Ulysses got a prize for its seamless UI and ability to smoothly switch between devices.

Games this year that got the prize all fit the slick and simple mould that Apple seems to value highly. They included Tomb Raider-themed puzzle game Lara Croft Go and one-touch colour-based runner Chameleon Run.

The student winners this year were Joaquin Vila with minimalist puzzle game Linum, and Josh Deichmann, Patrick Pistor and Erik Lydick with 2D arcade game Dividr.

You can find the full list of winners after the jump below, with links to their iTunes App Store pages, and you can find the rest of our WWDC coverage here.
