MediaPost Publications announced the 2014 annual Appy Award winners last month in New York City and Ancestry.com’s mobile app won—again—in the Reference App category. The Ancestry Mobile App won the same award last year.
“The APPY Awards, part of Internet Week New York, honor applications on all platforms and is dedicated to acknowledging creativity and excellence in app design,” says the MediaPost website. There are 40 categories, including Books, Cooking, Education, three gaming categories, two mapping categories, Medical, Music, Photography, Travel, and Weather. The Reference Category is for apps that provide reference information, guides, or reviews to the public.
