We’re proud to announce that Opal Travel and ORPA both won Gold awards at the Gov Design Awards!

Both Opal Travel and ORPA have previously won multiple awards at the World App Design Awards and the Sydney Design Awards. The success of these apps is a testament to the strong partnership between Outware and Transport for NSW, and the emphasis placed on user experience throughout these projects.

These apps assist millions of people with their daily commutes, and Outware is proud to have been involved in the development of these apps.

Congratulations to Transport for NSW and the Outware team!

Between 2011 and 2016, Outware was responsible for the design and development of the AFL Live Apps for iPhone, Android, iPad, Apple Watch, and Pebble Watch, and the AFL Clubs Apps for iPhone and Android. This app has become part of the AFL experience for many Australians, and it was an exciting project for Outware to be involved in.

As of July 2016, Outware is no longer responsible for the ongoing updates and maintenance of the AFL app, and has not been involved with the current version.

Outware was proud to be Telstra’s development partner for this app for several years, and we thank Telstra for the opportunity to be involved in this project.

Outware wishes Telstra every success with the future of this project.

2016 has been a huge year for Outware. We’ve moved offices, grown our team, and delivered some amazing new apps that are changing the daily lives of thousands of Australians.

Some of our key achievements this year include:

In addition to all of this, the Outwarians have managed to rack up some pretty impressive stats:

  • 12,857 cups of coffee made with our beloved coffee machine
  • 5,120 slices of pizza consumed
  • 2,496 bottles of beer drunk
  • 2,552,275,500 pixels coloured

  • Over 1.5 million emails received, and 300,000 sent

2016 will be a hard year to beat, but we can’t wait to see what 2017 has to offer. Wishing you all ‘Appy Holidays’, and all the best for the year ahead!
