This past week at the SXSW Festival in Austin, TX, iCookbook walked away with an Appy Award for best cooking app.
It's the second year in a row that iCookbook has won Media Post's Appy Award. The Appys are among the most prominent app awards in the industry. The awards acknowledge creativity and excellence in app designs across mobile, social and web-based platforms. The app has been around since 2011.
"We are blown away to win this award again. My hat is off to the other apps we compete with and we are humbled to know that other people love our app as much as we do," said Jerry Croft, President of Cooking & Digital Media at Publications International, Ltd. "All of the people here involved with iCookbook™ work very hard to try and provide the best cooking app for the everyday Chef," Croft added. "Winning this prestigious award validates that effort."
