11/4/2016 Happy news! During the inUse Award October 20, Swish won the prize "Best user experience."
The jury motivated its decision as follows:
Swishing has understandably become a part of Sweden's infrastructure – as well as part of the Swedish language. Swish solves a number of small day-to-day inconveniences and as such has made life easier, more fun and more efficient for a broad public."
The nominees were Hygglo, Dramatify, the Swedish Police Authority's multiple inquiry app, Touchtech Vendo, SJ's new mobile app, Dreams, Vodeville, Kry, Swish and Försäkringskassan's child support calculator.
