The glitterati of the mobile industry descended to the capital for the much anticipated UK App Awards 2018. We donned our finest attire for the ceremony and were delighted to be acclaimed as UK Agency of Year, for the second year in a row.
It’s the award every tech company like us wants, to be named the UK’s top mobile app developer. In a hotly contested category 3 Sided Cube walked away as champions for the second consecutive year.
Having previously won in 2017 we had everything crossed that we could bag the title once again. And due to our fantastic team and a hugely successful year of making great apps, platforms and digital products for our inspirational clients; we were lucky enough to walk away with the trophy.
Hosted at the glamourous Montcalm Marble Arch Hotel, the UK App Awards celebrates and rewards excellence in apps developed in the UK. Eighty of the countries finest development, design, and tech companies gathered for the display of the best work produced over the last twelve months.
The nineteen categories awarded on the evening ignited our passion for Tech For Good. We love work that makes a difference, and our peers were displaying some excellent examples of how tech can be life-changing. Congratulations to every agency who took home a gong and all those nominated for producing some truly inspirational work.
To be named the top UK mobile development agency wouldn’t be possible without the dedication of our clients who work with us to have an impact on the world. This year we have continued to help fight natural catastrophes with the GDPC and our disaster preparedness apps, empower RSPB to put the power of their nature and environment conservation app into the hands of their supporters and reached a milestone of 30,000 daily users for The American Red Cross Blood Donor App.
The judges were impressed with our team’s commitment to innovation and the dedication of 15% of our time to exploring new technologies. This innovation time creates solutions that can improve our work and ultimately help organisations, brands and businesses to solve problems in exciting new ways.
3 Sided Cube picked up the award for ‘UK Agency of the Year‘ in the medium-sized category, (agencies with 11-50 team members), a huge congratulations to Brightec who scooped the small category (up to 10 team members) and Apadmi who took home the large (51-100 team members) category award.
As well as being bestowed with one of the big three awards, CUBE were finalists in the Health and Fitness App of the Year category, for our O2 Touch Rugby App created for England Rugby.
Although we didn’t win (well done to Nutracheck who pipped us to it) it’s great to have been a runner-up and to be recognised for the sports app that has helped to bring communities together, get people inspired to play contactless rugby and helped to increase participation at O2 Touch centres across the country.
A massive thank you to our client’s and colleagues, past and present, who have helped us to once again gain become best in class with the mobile app development projects we’ve brought to life together.
Here’s to 2019 and maybe three in a row ???
