The Webby Awards showcase the best of the digital world. I’ve searched through the best of the best to find the award-winning powerhouse tech tools that will make your life easier.
Mint: Money Management
For the umpteenth year, the money-management app Mint swept the Financial Services/Banking category (overall winner and People’s Voice), plus an additional win for visual design. Mint will help you manage your money, keep track of your bills and create a budget you can follow.
Kahoot: Engaging Online Competitions for Entertainment and Learning
My science teacher sister was the first person who told me about Kahoot, an online game/competition tool that engages fidgety students and bored Zoom attendees. Kahoot won the People’s Voice award in the Education and Reference category.
Headspace: Meditation Tool with Morning Routines
Headspace has become a ubiquitous meditation and mental health tool — especially helpful and popular for the last 18 months. A new Headspace feature called “The Wake Up” won the People’s Voice award in Health and Fitness.
RoboKiller: Spam Call Manager and Spammer Tormenter
If you’ve ever wanted to bug a spammer as much as they bug you, RoboKiller is the answer. The tool won a Webby for Machine Learning and Bots because an intelligent system detects spam callers and engages them in time-wasting “conversations” with real-sounding “scam victims.”
Hugo: Meeting Management and Agenda Tool
Hugo helps teams stay on track and avoid endless, pointless, mind-numbing meetings. The tool organizes meeting notes, tasks and agendas; and it won the Webby in the Work and Productivity category.
Hopper: Travel Deal Finder
Just in time for the post-pandemic travel wave, Hopper receives the accolades it deserves with a win in the Travel category. Just enter your potential travel dates, and Hopper watches prices to help you get the best fares. I’ve loved Hopper for years.
