Yesterday was a great day for CircleMe as we were featured on Smashing Magazine and won the Appcircus London edition, which qualifies us for the Mobile Premier Awards taking place in Barcelona during the Mobile World Congress 2013!
We are featured on Smashing Magazine
Yesterday afternoon we found out that we were featured by the popular (probably the most popular!) graphic design blog Smashingmagazine as an example of good design:
We won the Appcircus London edition
Later on, our founder Erik Lumer was presenting our CircleMe app at the AppCircus, taking place in the Google Campus London. We were one of the lucky 10 Apps that were pre-selected and we were lucky enough to take the first place, which made us the best app in London according to AppCircus’ judges!
The judges were:
- Simon Cross, Engineer, Facebook London.
- Paul Sawers, Apps & Media Editor at The Next Web.
- Daniel Appelquist, Head of Product Management for BlueVia.
- Limvirak Chea, Director Business Development Europe & Middle East, InMobi.
- Sid Thekkepat, Associate of m8 Capital.
Erik only had few minutes, but we recorded this (rather “shaky”) video in case you were curious to check it out!
There were some amazing apps presenting. These were the 10 apps selected by the judges:
