Two designs from China – WeChat and Mobike – were selected for the 100 Great Designs of Modern Times this year, according to a report jointly compiled by business magazine Fortune and the IIT Institute of Design on Monday.

Social media platform WeChat from Tencent, as it has "[integrated] a host of essential mobile apps" and "become users' one-stop shop", took 31st place in the list, the report said.

It is "an app that makes our life much easier", the report added, citing Yongqi Lou, dean of the College of Design and Innovation at Tongji University.

Bikeshare service Mobike, solving the "last mile" problem with the first cashless, dockless bike share system, ranked 37th.

Tech firm Apple was named top designer with eight products ranked in the list, and iPhone took the top spot.

The list is based on a survey from 100 designers, architects and design teachers.
