SPIN Play – Tablet App of the Year at 2012 SPD Awards

SPIN Play won Tablet App of the Year at the 2012 Society of Publication Designers Awards last week in New York. The annual SPD Awards, now in their 47th year, honor the best in editorial design, photography and illustration in both print and digital.

For those keeping score, this is the fourth major award that SPIN Play has won since it was released in the spring of 2011. Previously, the SPIN Play app has won a 2011 Media Vanguard Award, 2011 HOW Interactive Design Award and was recognized as a finalist for the 2012 Digital Ellies earlier this year. SPIN Play was also inducted into Apple’s App Hall of Fame – joining two other Bottle Rocket apps, NPRand The Civil War Today.

Congratulations to our partners and friends at SPIN Media on the continued success!
