SketchNation Wins iPhone AppStar Awards

Before it has even been launched in the AppStore, TechAviv CA member Nitzan Vilnai‘s SketchNation is making waves as the AppsFire AppStar Awards winner in the Gaming category. The iPhone app, produced by Nitzan’s company Engineous Games, is literally ingenious. The video above speaks for itself but in short it lets you draw your own game objects (e.g. player, planes, enemies, rocks etc.) on a piece of paper, take a photo of them with your iPhone and have them magically appear and function in your own action game. Reminiscent of Shidonni, that’s thinking out of the iBox.

Hundreds of pre-launch app submissions were narrowed to 35 very impressive finalists and the winners were announced at LeWeb this week. Congrats Nitzan on a well deserved win.

Disclosure: I was a judge for the AppStar Awards.
