Papers wins 2010 Ars Design Award!

WOW! This morning we got the news that Papers has won another design award! Ars technica, one of our favorite websites, decided to hold its own ADA (Ars Design Awards) ceremony when Apple announced it wouldn’t do one for Mac OS X apps this year. Ars asked its readers to nominate the best Mac OS X apps in 5 different categories and we were very happy to see Papers nominated for Best Education app. And then came the announcement on the Ars technica website this morning that we had actually won! We’re very honoured and happy that Papers has now got two design awards behind its name. A big thanks to anyone who nominated Papers!

This means we will soon receive a second shiny aluminum cube! Awesome!

    Congratulations Alex et al. You have a wonderful piece of software. I think Apple should pay me a commission on the number of iPads people will buy after showing them Papers running on it! Keep up the good work and I can’t wait to see what you have in store for us in the future.

  • G:

    Congrats!!! I only heard of your app thru Ars and appshopper! I am now about to purchase your app! (Thx for the student discount!)

  • Congratulations to this inspirational entrepreneur for yet another fully merited award!

  • Jerry:

    Congratulations team! Keep up the good work!
    I Heart Papers : )

  • Tom English:

    Congratulations! Papers is sublime; a powerful, practical and enjoyable way to manage and master academic material. My Ph.D depends on it! Keep up the good work.

  • Congratulations! This is great news.

  • Christopher Todd:

    Congrads! You guys deserve this award. Organisation is decidedly NOT my strong suit but Papers goes a long way towards making me more organised. Now I am just waiting for the update that allows me to organise more than just articles!

  • Kent Barnard:

    Hearty Congratulations!
    My master’s thesis is also in your hands (no pressure!).
    Now, about that highlighting feature… :)

  • Congratulations ! Promise us you will be always by student’s side.
    After seeing the new features in IPad, I am really looking forward to highlighting in OS X version (esp for OS X 10.5)! Pretty please ! :)

  • You guys rock. From early versions of Papers to the dynamic duo of iPad + Mac versions syncing automatically, Papers is how I read and catalog research literature. People have a hard time believing that I carry around 1000+ articles on all aspects of my research in my little iPad. Heck, I hardly believe it either. Keep up the good work, your awards are well deserved!

  • Keshavmurthy Shashank:

    Great!! I am one of those luck people who is using Papers since it was started and I am happy by its growth….it is an awesome reference tool for any researcher!!! cool!!

  • Would like to understand your iPad app better. Hard to separate out what your products that won’t work on iPad from….. Anything you can give me to study — help me decide whether to buy?

    Not a trained scientist — wish to learn more re: selected topics in biochem., organic chem., industrial chemical production. Some wish to study history of cyber life.
