The Tabby Awards /Business has announced the winners of its 2014 competition, which recognizes the best business and productivity apps on iOS, Android and Windows tablets. This year’s winning apps were selected by an international panel of 20 independent judges, who reviewed over 130 apps from developers around the world.
This year’s panel was chaired by Alex Bratton, author of Billion Dollar Apps and CEO & chief geek of Lextech Global Services, and co-chaired by Jeff Klaumann, former head of Samsung Apps US, Samsung Electronics.
“I was inspired by the innovative apps submitted, especially the winners,” said Bratton, in a statement. “They are indicative of the type of game-changing apps that are winning over the enterprise by solving real business problems in a way that engages the user. Reviewing them was a great reminder of why we mobile entrepreneurs do what we do — deliver solutions that have the potential to change lives.”
