At Agile, we have a passion for apps. Beautiful, useful, powerful apps. And we've had it since Day One: when the App Store opened, on July 10th, 2008, Agile was there. GuitarToolkit was one of just 600 apps that appeared in the App Store that day, and it pioneered the use of the iPhone as a tool for musicians.
When Apple launched the iPad on April 3rd, 2010, Agile was again there with the first iPad-based digital sheet music app, TabToolkit, which later won the Apple Design Award. Agile has continued breaking new ground for the musician, including the first authentically-modeled amp & effects app for iOS, AmpKit.
Agile apps have been recognized time and time again for excellence, both by Apple, 3rd party reviewers, and most importantly, by our customers.
The Apple Design Award (ADA) is handed out to a small handful of app developers each year. Apple says on its ADA site "Every year, Apple Design Award winners set new standards that inspire us all." The ADA is the app world's equivalent of the Emmy Award; there is no higher honor among app developers. ADA winners are announced at Apple's annual World Wide Developers Conference, typically held in June each year. 2010 was a particularly important year for the ADA: the first iPad had shipped just two months earlier. Agile is proud to have been one of just five iPad winners that year with TabToolkit.
