News of the Future – Appsfactory and Tagesschau Win the iF Design Award for the 3.0 App

Leipzig, May 17, 2023 – Appsfactory, in collaboration with Tagesschau, has won this year's iF DESIGN AWARD, placing it among the recipients of the globally renowned design label. The App 3.0 was awarded in the Communication discipline, Apps & Software category. The iF DESIGN AWARD is presented annually by the world's oldest independent design institution, the iF International Forum Design GmbH.


The App, now in version 3.2, has been a pioneer in delivering media content to users. With a design that has always focused on modern UX/UI, the app has consistently received high ratings in the app stores and secured a spot in the top list of store download charts. In addition to its design, the app has also stood out with innovations in other areas, such as AI-assisted conversion of image content into vertical videos and automated content generation. With a rating of 4.5 stars out of 81,800 reviews on Google Play Store and 4.6 stars out of 107,000 ratings on the Apple App Store, it is clear that this approach has been fully embraced by users.


"We are proud to see our longstanding innovation partnership with NDR and Tagesschau recognized through the iF Design Award," said Dr. Alexander Trommen, CEO of Appsfactory. "User-centric content presentation has been an important focus of our shared goals from the beginning. The award and the app's consistent popularity demonstrate how custom software, particularly through design, is instrumental to success," added Dr. Trommen.
