These Are Google’s Top 5 Picks for Material Design Apps in 2016

Google has just announced the winners of this year’s Material Design Awards. The awards which were introduced last year provide acclaim to those developers who did their best in employing Material Design, Google’s major design philosophy, in their Android apps.

The winners of the award all elevated Material Design to some extent, while also appropriately highlighting their brand. The selected apps will be honored at the SPAN LA conference on the 27th later this month. Here are the best Material Design apps for this year:
