DIT Computing Graduate wins Grand Prix at Ireland?s Appy Awards

Posted: 9 December, 2014

DIT Graduate and app developer Mark O’Donovan picked up the Grand Prix at the recent Appy Awards. Mark received the award for his work on the Paddy Power iPad App.  Mark completed an ios development course here at DIT in 2012 and has since gone on to work in app development at Superhippo and Paddypower.


Now in its fifth year the Appy Awards aims to celebrate and reward the very best apps and developers in Ireland.  “The Grand Prix was awarded to the Paddy Power iPad App because the judges felt its design, functionality and the thought that went into its development raises the bar in terms of app development,” says Des Doris, event organiser.

“The apps that entered this year’s competition were a revelation,” says Stephen Conmy, event organiser. “The standard of app development, since this awards show began five years ago, has risen dramatically.

“Apps are the largest part of the mobile web. 60% of the time spent on the web is now by people doing so with a mobile device. And of those accessing the Internet, 52% are now doing so through an app rather than a website, which is a 40% increase from 2013.”
