We know you’ve been anxiously waiting to have ArchDaily with you everywhere you go – whether on the road or on your couch. Well, we’ve listened, and we’re more than proud to announce the launch of our first iPad application!

Our new FREE App will give you in-depth access to the winners and finalists of The Award, the most important architecture award in the online world (since 2009). It’s an award that recognizes architects – both established heavyweights and emerging talents – as the best and brightest of today, and they’re all chosen by you, our community of ArchDaily readers. While you’ll have to wait a bit longer until you can vote for your favorite 2012 projects (TBA early 2013), the App offers the perfect distraction: full access to the 2011 winners.

Special features of the “Building of the Year” App include:

  • An extensive photo gallery, optimized with Retina Display, for each of the winners
  • High-Res Drawings
  • Descriptions of each project
  • Interviews with the winners
  • Profiles of the winning studios
  • An introduction to each finalist

The development of this App has been an interesting journey to say the least (this is our first venture into the iPad world, after all), and we couldn’t have done it without our friends at Claan, who gave us the design and technical know-to make this high-quality App a reality. We’ve put in a lot of work to make sure each photo is in the highest resolution, each interview contains every detail, and each post offers invaluable insight into the winning studios — all the while maintaining a killer design and an easy user experience — and we’re thrilled with the results.

So, what are you waiting for (we mentioned it’s FREE, right)? The App is only a click away…

Compatible with iPad. Requires iOS 4.3 or later.
