With less than two weeks before The SPARKies Awards Party, we thought it would be a good idea to profile all of the finalists. So this is the first post in a series that will profile the finalists in each category. First up: Best App.
Roodie Noodies is a bright, colourful and fun game developed for the whole family. Featuring beach dwelling creatures who love playing games such a Slippery Pole or Rubbery rings, its popularity has surged because of its addictiveness and wide appeal. Available for both the iPhone and iPad, it was developed by Complete Control who focus upon creating fresh entertainment and media rich educational resources.
Showreel showcases the latest HD movie trailers on the iPad against a beautifully designed backdrop featuring movie art and plot summaries, creating a stunning visual experience for the avid movie-goer. Also features streaming over AirPlay, allowing users to watch trailers on the big screen too. Developed by Riot, a small design & development team working in Bath, who have also created the Converse and Shaken apps for the iPad.
Tap! is a digital magazine for the iPhone and iPad, with useful guides, “how tos” and app reviews to ensure users get the most from their devices. Also featuring the latest hardware and accessory tests, helping buyers to make informed decisions about their next purchases. Developed by Future Publishing, the creators of some of the biggest names in the tech media industry such as MacFormat, T3, Total Film and TechRadar.com.
This category represents a diverse selection of apps yet all are testament to the high calibre of the Bath tech industry. Want to know who will win? Make sure you get your tickets for the SPARKies Awards party on Wednesday 21st March at Komedia.
