Cross-Platform Experience | 2013 Award Categories

Cross-Platform Experience

Users interact with products and services through a growing diversity of platforms: installed software, mobile apps, web apps, smart TVs, etc. Each platform has unique strengths, weaknesses, constraints, uses, and modes of interaction. This award recognizes product and service experiences that span multiple platforms, make the best use of the strengths of each, create an overall experience that’s greater than the sum of its parts, let users move easily and naturally between platforms, and potentially offer capabilities that couldn’t have been achieved without the interconnection of platforms.
