The entry period of Best of Swiss Apps 2017 has started

On November 15, the best apps in Switzerland will be awarded for the fifth time. Work can be submitted from now until September 11. Projects from the field of virtual/augmented reality are expected with particular curiosity this year.


The annual theme of virtual/augmented reality takes into account the fact that virtual worlds and the fusion of reality with additional information are no longer the preserve of a few technology pioneers, but have arrived in the midst of current entrepreneurial considerations, writes the organizer. Therefore, one may be particularly curious to see what ideas and approaches app designers in Switzerland have implemented.

But not only annual theme projects are in demand, but all apps produced in or for Switzerland that have been newly created or revised in the last twelve months or will be in the next few weeks. The jury's focus is on agency skills. In all nine categories, the skills and abilities that make up a successful media product are given greater weight.

Changes have been made to the category designations again this year.The nine categories are:

  • Innovation
  • Design
  • User Expirience (Usability),
  • Functional
  • Business
  • Campaigns
  • Enterprise
  • Games
  • Special category: Augmented/Virtual Reality
