Invented by Martin Cooper (above) in 1973, the marvel of the mobile phone broadened our ability to communicate with one another. Nowadays, the questions is what apps are you using and what are you using them for?

Like another app to update, the smartphone continues to connect us in more intricate and fine-tuned ways. From games, to streaming, to Internet browsing, social media, lifestyle and everything in-between, the smartphone contains multitudes of app possibilities (and, admittedly, distractions too).

Inspired by Betaworks’ homescreen.is, we reached out to a selection of our judges here at the Webby Awards and asked to see what their home screens looked like. As members of The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, they see the breadth of the mobile landscape, experiencing apps big and small. As industry leaders and technology-forward users which apps they use most can be seen as a mark of excellence. Did your favorites make the cut?


Making great Internet? Or a Mobile-First Master, perhaps? Share your home screen with us @TheWebbyAwards.com!
